Clue: High School Edition

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 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!

Cast of Characters 

WADSWORTH, a traditional British butler in every sense: uptight, formal and “by the book.” He is the driving force in the play. 

YVETTE, a French maid with her own secret aspirations.

MISS SCARLET, a dry, sardonic D.C. socialite, interested in secrets. 

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 professional driver who rings the wrong doorbell. (Alive and Dead.)

CHIEF OF POLICE, a cop who helps to save the day. 

THE UNEXPECTED COP, Typical Cop who just wants to use the phone.  (Alive and Dead.)
