Circa ’21 is accepting submissions
for its fall show

CLUE THE MUSICAL

 

On a dark and stormy night, six unique guests, plus a butler and a maid, assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy.  When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! 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 the madcap whodunit that will keep you guessing (and laughing) to the very end.
