From a press release:

Help solve a murder mystery with some familiar suspects when “Clue: The Musical” comes to the Music Box Dinner Playhouse in Swoyersville for two weekends, opening this Friday, Oct. 20 and running Fridays through Sundays until Oct. 29.

Based on the board game “Clue” that was adapted into a comedy film in 1985, the plot concerns a murder at a mansion, occupied by several suspects, that is solved by a detective – with your help.

The show has an interactive feature in which audience members randomly select cards that determine which suspect committed the murder, which weapon was used, and in what room the murder took place. Based on the cards drawn, the show has 216 possible endings, with some interchangeable dialogue between characters that is delivered as the story unfolds.

The musical features a book by Peter DePietro; music by Galen Blum, Wayne Barker, and Vinnie Martucci; and lyrics by Tom Chiodo.

Directed by Kim Rose with musical direction by Jen Hunter and costumes by Seth Golden, this show at the Music Box (196 Hughes St., Swoyersville) stars Ben Dugas as Mr. Boddy, Deirdre Lynch as Miss Scarlet, Matt Buckman as Colonel Mustard, David Giordano as Mrs. White, John Bubul as Mr. Green, Jessica Miorelli as Mrs. Peacock, Jimmy Daly as Professor Plum, and Jennifer Kozerski as the detective.

For Friday and Saturday evening performances, doors open at 6 p.m., with the buffet open at 6:30 and the curtain up at 8 p.m. For the Sunday matinee performances, doors open at 1 p.m., with the buffet open at 1:30 p.m. and the curtain rising at 3 p.m. Dinner and show tickets are $35; “show only” tickets are $18. Dinner tickets must be purchased in advance.
