Clue: On Stage - Mrs. Peacock

This is Janet’s third time on stage at Theatre in the Heights. She is thrilled to be performing as Mrs. Peacock in the stage production of Clue on Stage, and she would like to thank Blake for casting her in this role.

She appeared in 2017 as Martha Gillette in Theatre in the Heights’ production of Game’s Afoot, (or Holmes for the Holidays) and in 2019 she received the theater’s Best Actress award for her role as Fonsia Dorsey in The Gin Game.

Since moving to the Sacramento area, she also performed at The Crocker Museum for Performing Arts in The Flood, one of The Vagina Monologs. Most recently, she was in a Sutter Street Theatre production of You Can’t Take it With You, as The Grand Duchess Olga Katrina. She began acting when living on the Mendocino Coast from 1974 to 1984 where she had roles in Beggars’ Opera, Bye Bye Birdie, The Mad Woman of Chaillot and a local production of a clown circus. After moving to Santa Rosa, she had a role in Animal Crackers, The Music Man and A Christmas Carol.

She is most grateful to her husband, Gary Kiddie, who spent many long hours helping her memorize her lines, for putting up with her as she morphed into Mrs. Peacock, and for his hard work behind the scenes, to help make this production happen.
