Clue: On Stage, the theatrical adaptation of the 1985 cult film, will receive its world premiere at the Bucks County Playhouse this spring. Hunter Foster directs the production that begins previews May 2, with an official opening set for May 6.
Based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn with additional material by Eric Price and Foster, the world premiere is presented at Bucks County by special arrangement with The Araca Group, Work Light Productions, Michael Barra Productions, and Aged in Wood Productions.
The cast features Sally Struthers as Mrs. Peacock, Erin Dilly as Mrs. White, Kevin Carolan as Colonel Mustard, Brian J. Carter as Mr. Green, Clifton Duncan as Professor Plum, Lindsay Nicole Chambers as Miss Scarlet, Carson Elrod as Wadsworth, and Claire Simba as Yvette. The cast also includes Cassandra Dupler and William Youmans playing multiple roles.
Here’s how it’s billed: “On a dark and stormy night, six unique guests, plus a butler and a maid, assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! Soon the guests are racing to find the killer and keep the body count from stacking up. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will keep you guessing (and laughing) to the very end.”
The creative team features Jen Cody as associate director, Anna Louizos as scenic designer with lighting design by Ryan O’Gara and costume design by Nicole V. Moody. Bart Fasbender serves as sound designer. Jane Pole is the production stage manager.
