Hi, my name is Christina Farah, and I'm president of Princeton University Players.

We perform in many theaters across campus from 185 to Frist to the small black box theaters in Forbes, Wilcox, and now in the new Whitman theater.

Christina Farah:
We're very versatile; we can perform basically anywhere. We love to bring musical theater to every part on campus.

Andy Linz:

The ace swindler himself.

Caroline Loevner (Mrs. White):
You've got some dirt on him, don'cha? Come on.

P.J. Miller (Professor Plum):
Dirt is a substance that lies on the ground; in your case, under your fingernails.

Willie Myers:
The funny thing about "Clue the Musical" is that, unlike other musicals, it has 216 different endings that are decided by the audience.

Singers:
We should stick together, females in foul weather. Please don't sell us down the river, rowing up without an oar.

Irene Moskowitz:
It's just a great group of people to be involved with, and it's a great way to meet people on campus with similar interests.

Irene Moskowitz:
It's a lot of fun, and I've really enjoyed being a part of PUP throughout my Princeton career.

Gracie Hoerner:
This is the fourth show I've been involved in this year, which is really awesome because it was really easy to get involved as a freshman,

Gracie Hoerner:
especially -- I'm not an actress. I do more of the technical side of theater, and they're also really welcoming to that.

Andy Linz:
It's my first show with this particular group, and it's a lot of fun.
