Fort Myers Theatre’s ‘Clue on Stage’ a hilarious farce meets murder mystery


Clue: On Stage is coming to Fort Myers Theatre in January. Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery that takes place in a maze of nine rooms on one small stage.

In this theatrical version of the classic Hasbro board game, 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, we quickly discover that all of them are being blackmailed by the same person – their host. Each guest is presented with a weapon and an option: pay their extortionist double or kill Wadsworth, the butler. But it’s not Wadsworth who turns up dead. It’s Boddy, their host!

Led by Wadsworth, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard now race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. What follows is a madcap, slapstick evening full of murder, mystery, and laughs as they seek to puzzle out the culprit amongst criminals.

Written by Sandy Rustin, Clue: On Stage is based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn, with music by David Abbinanti. Clue: On Stage 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!?

Performances run January 19-28. Go here for play dates and times.
