Clue: On Stage (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 Scarlet, 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!

“Fantastic production for high schools, especially schools with smaller departments!”

Jeff Walker, Teacher/Director, Fall Mountain High School, Lempster, NH

“Students loved being a part of it, and it was very well received by their families, school administration, and the community. The script was amazing, as were the sound effects, and we enjoyed the production from start to finish.”

Tina Grimes, Director, Paulding High School, Paulding, OH

1 Musician

Keyboard Only


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

A sexy, French Maid, with her own secret aspirations. (Also plays THE REPORTER in the final scene).

Miss Scarlet
A dry, sardonic D.C. Madam who is more interested in secrets than sex.

Mrs. Peacock
The church-going 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, blow-hard of a military man.

Professor Plum
An academic Casanova who woos women with his big … brain.

Mr. Green
A timid, yet officious, rule follower. He’s a bit of a klutz and awfully anxious.
