Department of Performing Arts to present “Clue” March 31-April 2

With a screenplay based on the Hasbro board game and the Paramount Pictures movie, the production will have performances on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday.

Department of Performing Arts will present its production of “Clue” on March 31 through April 2 with both evening and matinee performances.

The production is based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn and draws from the popular Hasbro board game as well as the 1985 Paramount Pictures movie “Clue.”

About the production:

It’s a dark and stormy night, and you’ve been invited to a very unusual dinner party. Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well…dead.

So, whodunnit? Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacks up. Based on the cult classic film and the popular board game, Clue is a madcap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist.

Performances will be held on Friday, March 31, at 7:30 p.m., on Saturday, April 1, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday, April 2, at 2 p.m.

Written by Sandy Rustin with additional material by Hunter Foster and Eric Price, the production features original music by Michael Holland. Elon’s production is directed by Professor of Performing Arts Fredrick J. Rubeck, who chairs the Department of Performing Arts.

Admission is $15 or free with an Elon ID. Tickets are available at
