“The internationally popular game is now a fun-filled musical that brings the world’s best-known suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery: who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room, and with what weapon,” Stage III said.
Peter DePitro is the author of “Clue: The Musical.” Tom Chiodo wrote the lyrics and music is by Wayne Barker, Galen Blum and Vinnie Martucci.
“The audience receives forms to help them deduce the solution from clues given throughout the fun-filled evening. Three audience members choose from cards representing the potential murderers, weapons, and rooms; there are 216 possible solutions.”
Kris Kontour is directing Stage III’s performance with help from assistant director Tina Saunders. Ty Herbert is directing the music.
“Only one hard-nosed female detective is qualified to unravel the merry mayhem. Comic antics, witty lyrics, and a beguiling score carry the investigation from room to room. Even after the culprit confesses, a surprise twist delights the audience.”
Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Those are available online or at The Cadillac Cowgirl. They can also be purchased at the door up to an hour in advance of each performance.
A Wyoming Arts Council grant is supporting the staging of “Clue: The Musical.”
Other performers not shown in photographs include Rob Tate as “Mr. Boddy” and Nicole Jaramillo as the detective.
Stage III is located at 900 North Center Street.
