“Clue: the Musical” opens Thursday night at Tryon Little Theater’s (TLT) Workshop.
Based on the Parker Brothers board game, CLUE, the colorful and quirky characters in this show will invite the audience to help solve the mystery of who killed Mr. Boddy.

Sleuthing her way through clues could be difficult in high heels, but someone has to do it. And this hard-nosed gumshoe is flat-footed enough to take on the job of who killed Mr. Boddy. Professor Plum thinks he can charm her, but she lets the air out of his pomposity pretty promptly. You don’t mess with this lady! Since she’s been in education, written for the press and run her own marketing company, this little chicky knows all the tricks. But can she solve the mystery of who dunnit, with what and where? You’ll only find out if you come and put your backside on a theater seat. (photo by Lorin Browning)

Director Debbie Craig-Archer and musical director Ben Chumley, both from Spartanburg, S.C., bring with them years of experience in theater arts; local artists and crew have transformed the black box theater into a magical game-board; and the colorful cast of zany characters are ready to conspire and contrive.
And the audience will help solve the mystery of who dunnit, where they did it, and with what: the candlestick or the gun; the rope or lead pipe; the wrench or the knife? And get this, there are 216 possible endings.
“Clue: the Musical” runs for two weekends, Sept. 22 – 25 and Sept. 29 – Oct. 2 at TLT’s Workshop, 516 S. Trade St. in Tryon. The box office is open 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Call 828-859-2466 to reserve tickets, or visit www.tltinfo.org for more information.
