The Southwestern College theater department will present “Clue,” a comedy murder mystery at 7:30 p.m. March 12-13 and at 2 p.m. March 14 in Messenger Auditorium in the Darbeth Fine Arts Center.

Seating will be limited due to social distancing, so reserving tickets is encouraged.

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, “Clue” is a 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 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 audience members trying to figure out who did it, where, and with what.

“At a time when we all need a break, it is exciting to do a live performance that the entire family can enjoy,” director Allyson Moon said. “The cast and crew has been having a lots of fun with this comedy murder mystery, and they want you to have one, too. Plan to wear your mask, be seated as a group but distanced from others, and have a really good time.”
