It’s time for the Spring Show!
It’s a dark and stormy night at a very unusual and deadly dinner party. Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well . . . dead. So whodunnit? Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacks up. Based on the cult classic film and the popular board game, Clue: On Stage is a madcap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist.
