Auditions: Clue On Stage


Rehearsals start April 4, 2022

Directed by:  John Szablewski

Play Synopsis

On a stormy night, in a remote mansion, six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie, starring Tim Curry, and inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!
