Clue: The Play - Postponed

By Jonathan Lynn

Directed by Steve Noll

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 the 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!

Produced by Mercury Players Theater at Bartell Theater's Drury Stage, 113 E. Mifflin St. , Madison

Auditions will be held on the following days:


Open auditions Mon/Tue July 13-14. Callbacks Wednesday July 15. 7pm each night at Bartell Theatre in Madison. Actors will be asked to familiarize themselves with the classic "Who's On First" routine and perform it on stage first, then will read from sides of play. All parts are open. Please note, we are not just recreating the movie on stage. An audition consisting of a Madeline Kahn or Tim Curry impression will not get you cast.

WADSWORTH, a traditional British butler in every sense: uptight, formal and “by the book.” He is the driving force in the play.
YVETTE, a loyal and sexy French maid.
MISS SCARLET, a dry, sardonic D. C. madam, more interested in secrets than sex.
MRS. PEACOCK, the wealthy wife of a senator. A bit batty, neurotic, and quick to hysteria.
MRS. WHITE, a pale, morbid, and tragic woman. Mrs. White may or may not be the murderer of her five ex-husbands.
COLONEL MUSTARD, a puffy, pompous, dense, blowhard of a military man.
PROFESSOR PLUM, an arrogant academic, easily impressed by himself.
MR. GREEN, a timid yet officious rule follower. He’s awfully anxious.
THE COOK, a gruff woman with a threatening presence. (Alive and Dead.)
SINGING TELEGRAM GIRL, a tap dancer with a heart of gold. (Alive and Dead.)
MR. BODDY, a slick, Frank Sinatra, film noir-esque type fella. (Alive and Dead.) THE MOTORIST, a benign gentleman who rings the wrong door- bell. (Alive and Dead.)CHIEF OF POLICE, a cop who helps to save the day.
THE “BROKEN DOWN CAR” COP, a regular Joe. (Alive and Dead.)
BACKUP COP, backup for the chief.
