Is the murderer Miss Scarlet in the Ballroom with the Candlestick? Or Colonel Mustard in the Kitchen with the Rope? Join ABC Players as they present their first production of the 2019/2020 season, Clue: The Musical, where audiences will get to play the game throughout the musical to figure out who, with what and where? Audiences can try to solve the murder at the historic Stuart’s Opera House on Thursday, Oct. 10, Friday, Oct. 11 and Saturday, Oct. 12 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 13 at 2 p.m.

Hear WOUB’s interview with members of the musical’s cast, above.

The production, with book by Peter DePietro, music by Galen Blum, Wayne Barker and Vinnie Martucci, and lyrics by Tom Chiodo, is all based on the popular board game Clue. The plot concerns a murder at a mansion where all the suspects have been invited.  At the start of the show, audience members select cards that determine the murderer, murder weapon and location of the murder.  There are 216 possible directions the show could take.

“This is the most talented and dedicated group of actors that I have ever worked with,” said director Sylvia Abbott. “They have made this experience so much fun.”

The talented cast includes: Joe Balding, Jeroch Carlson, Dan Dunham, Matthew Johnson, Kevin Kunz, Jodi MacNeal, Samantha Pelham, Ezra Thobaben and Linda Watkins.

The production is directed by Sylvia Abbott, with musical direction by Jodi MacNeal and choreography by Jenn Fritchley.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students.  Advance tickets are available at or by calling (740) 753-1924 and will also be sold at the door.

This audience-interactive show is sponsored by Intelliwave Broadband.

Clue: The Musical is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French.
