The classic board game is brought to life in Clue: On Stage! Six guests are invited to a dinner party thrown by an anonymous host. They are given aliases--Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum, and Miss Scarlet. Though discouraged from revealing personal information, it is soon discovered that all of them have fallen victim to the same blackmailer, their very host of the evening. Each is presented with a weapon and an option: pay their extortionist double, or kill the innocent butler. What follows is a madcap, slapstick evening full of murder, mystery, and laughs as they seek to puzzle out the culprit amongst criminals.
Wadsworth: (30-50) A traditional British butler in ever sense: uptight, formal, and by the book. He is the driving force in the play.
Yvette: (20s-30s) A loyal and sexy French maid
Miss Scarlet: (20s-30s) A dry sardonic D.C. madam, more interested in secrets than sex.
Mrs. Peacock: (50s-70s) The wealthy wife of a senator. A bit batty, neurotic and quick to hysteria
Mrs. White: (30s-40s) A pale, morbid, and tragic woman. Mrs. White may or may not be the murder of her five ex-husbands.
Colonel Mustard: (40s-50s) A puffy, pompous, dense, blowhard of a military man.
Professor Plum: (30s-40s) An arrogant academic, easily impressed by himself.
Mr. Green: (30s-40s) A timid yet officious rule follower. He’s awfully anxious
