Clue
AUDITIONS

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where 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. Led by Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. 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!

Did you know? In the movie Clue, Carrie Fisher was originally set to play Miss Scarlet, but she ended up in rehab and had to drop out. Both John Cleese (Monty Python) and Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) were in discussions for the Wadsworth role. Imagine how different the movie might have turned out. This just shows that anyone could have a take on these characters and no one needs to do an impression from the movie.
