Directors Peter Matthews & Nick A. Olivero have a brilliant show - sure to sell out - so buy up all these goldstar seats if you can find any.. this is truly a charm to sit above the amazing wiz of a CLUE GAME Board designed by co director Olivero...continued

This was such an interesting production. The stage is a square that is viewed from above as if you are all sitting around a board game. J Conrad, as Mrs. Peacock was brilliant as always. I also enjoyed the fact that the writers also included...continued

I played the board game as a kid but never saw the movie. It seems you need to be a big fan of the movie to appreciate this show. The cast was fun. The location of the theatre is scary.

After the show, stick around to watch the original film with free popcorn on Wednesdays, go ’80s dancing with cast & crew at the Kat Club on Thursdays or play the game with the actors as life-size playing pieces on Fridays.

Description

Based on the movie written by Jonathan Lynn & John Landis

Adapted for the stage by Peter Matthews & Nick A. Olivero

Directed by Peter Matthews & Nick A. Olivero

A play based on a movie based on a board game. The 1985 cult classic is adapted for the stage with every side-splitting joke intact and even a few new ones thrown in for good measure. Peering over a life-sized board game, the audience watches from six feet in the air as six guests and a bumbling butler navigate square by tiny square searching a mansion to find out who killed Mr. Boddy. Was it Colonel Mustard in the billiard room with the wrench or Ms. Scarlet in the lounge with the candlestick? With secret passages running underneath the seats, and multiple different endings, this completely ripped off production is the most original yet. Clue – It’s not just a game anymore… or a movie.
