Play description: 

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!


Cast List and Breakdown (may be adjusted for casting): 

Performer Age Minimum – 18 years old

Coronado Playhouse is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. All ethnicities and Transgender/Gender Non Conforming individuals are encouraged to audition. 

Wadsworth: A traditional British butler in every sense: uptight, formal and “by the book.” He is the driving force in the play. 

Colonel Mustard: A puffy, pompous, dense, blow-hard of a military man.

Mrs. White: A pale, morbid, and tragic woman. Mrs. White may or may not be the murderer of her five ex-husbands. Minor fight choreography involved.

Mr. Green: A timid, yet officious, rule follower. He’s a bit of a klutz and awfully anxious. Minor fight choreography involved.

Mrs. Peacock: The church-going wife of a Senator. A bit batty, neurotic, and quick to hysteria. Minor fight choreography involved.

Professor Plum: An academic Casanova who woos women with his big … brain.

Miss Scarlet: A dry, sardonic D.C. Madam who is more interested in secrets than sex.

Yvette: A sexy, French Maid, with her own secret aspirations. Minor fight choreography involved.

Ensemble Individual (The Cook, The Motorist, An Agent, Auxiliary Scarlet & Wadsworth) – Minor fight choreography involved.

Ensemble Individual (Mr. Boddy, The Cop, An Agent, Auxiliary Mustard & Wadsworth) – Minor fight choreography involved.

All fight choreography will be staged by a fight choreographer in rehearsals.
