SHOW SYNOPSIS:

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!

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

YVETTE (female presenting, 20-30) A loyal and sexy, French Maid.

MISS. SCARLET (female presenting, 30-40) A dry, sardonic D.C. Madam, more interested in secrets than sex.

MRS. PEACOCK (female presenting, 40-60) The wealthy wife of a Senator. A bit batty, neurotic, and quick to hysteria.

MRS. WHITE (female presenting, 30-40) A pale, morbid, and tragic woman. Mrs. White may or may not be the murderer of her five ex-husbands.

COLONEL MUSTARD (male presenting, 40-60) A puffy, pompous, dense, blow-hard of a military man.

PROFESSOR PLUM (male presenting, 30-40) An arrogant, academic, easily impressed by himself.

MR. GREEN (male presenting, 30-40) A timid, yet officious, rule follower. He’s awfully anxious.

ENSEMBLE WOMAN (female presenting, 20-30) THE COOK, a gruff woman with a threatening presence. SINGING TELEGRAM GIRL, A tap dancer with a heart of gold.

ENSEMBLE MAN 1 (male presenting 30-40) MR. BODDY, a slick, Frank Sinatra, film noir-esque type fella. THE MOTORIST, a benign gentleman who rings the wrong doorbell. CHIEF OF POLICE, a cop who helps to save the day.

ENSEMBLE MAN 2 (male presenting 30-40) THE “BROKEN DOWN CAR” COP, a “Regular Joe.” BACKUP COP, backup for the chief.

WADSWORTH (male presenting 30-40) A traditional British butler in every sense: uptight, formal and “by the book.” He is the driving force in the play.
