Clue: The Musical, the upcoming Theatre Wesleyan production, is a murder mystery musical that takes the audience in the classic game which brings the world’s best-known suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery, which ends differently each time: who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room and with what weapon?
Clue is a musical based on the book by Peter DePietro and will be directed by Jeanne Everton, associate professor of theatre.
“The audience receives forms to help them deduce the solution from clues given throughout the fun-filled evening,” Everton said. “Three audience members choose from cards representing the potential murderers, weapons and rooms; there are 216 possible solutions!”
Only one hard-nosed female detective (played by Deja Chase) is qualified to unravel the mayhem.
Clue has comic antics, witty lyrics and a music score that will carry the investigation from room to room. Even after the villain confesses, a surprise twist will shock the audience.
Clue: The Musical runs April 21-24 at the Thad Smotherman Theatre, on campus at the corner of Avenue E and Binkley Street. Showtime is Thursday through Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 for faculty, students and senior citizens. General admission tickets are $10. Tickets can be reserved by calling (817) 531- 4211.
