Why should you audition for a non-musical? A non-musical (straight play) relies on the spoken word to tell the story. This gives our young actors the opportunity to focus on developing their acting skills including characterization, emotional response and improvisation.
AUDITION REGISTRATION & FORMS
CLUE SYNOPSIS & CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS
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.
WADSWORTH – a traditional British butler in every sense: uptight, formal and “by the book”. He is the driving force of the play.
YVETTE – a French maid with her own secret aspirations
MISS SCARLET – a dry, sardonic woman who is very interested in secrets
MRS. PEACOCK – the churchgoing wife of a senator. A bit batty, neurotic, and quick to hysteria.
MRS. WHITE – a pale, morbid, and tragic woman. She may or may not be the murderer of her five ex-husbands
COLONEL MUSTARD – a puffy, pompous, dense military man
PROFESSOR PLUM – an arrogant academic, easily impressed by himself
MR. GREEN – a timid, yet officious, rule follower. He’s a bit of a klutz and awfully anxious.
THE COOK – a gruff woman with a threatening presence
MR. BODDY – a slick, Frank Sinatra, film noir-esque fella.
ENSEMBLE FEMALES – Singing telegram girl, Backup cop, others
ENSEMBLE MALES – Motorist, Chief of Police, others
