Marietta Theatre Company is committed to building diversity and inclusion onstage and throughout our organization. We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds, performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as performers with disabilities, to audition.

ABOUT THE SHOW: Based on the iconic cult film, 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 Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Featuring all your favorite jokes and one-liners from the movie, CLUE is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches!

WHAT TO PREPARE: Clue: On Stage is a play, not a musical. Please prepare a 1-2 minute comedic monologue which may highlight your physical comedy abilities. Please bring your resume and headshot.

FROM THE DIRECTOR: A familiarity with the 1985 film is encouraged. While we are not looking to create a carbon copy of it, or of the iconic performances it features – our goal is to honor and pay homage to it as much as possible. The movie is available to stream for free currently on Amazon Prime Video. 

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:
Important Note: ALL roles require STRONG physical comedy skills.

LEADING ENSEMBLE: These characters appear in the majority of scenes and will be called to the majority of rehearsals.
– WADSWORTH – 25-49 – A traditional British butler in every sense; uptight, formal and “by the book”. He is the driving force in the play. (Must be able to do a Standard British accent or RP and a Standard American accent.)
– MISS SCARLET – 25–45 – A dry, sardonic D.C. madam, more interested in secrets than sex.
– MRS. PEACOCK – 49–69 – The wealthy wife of a senator. A bit batty, neurotic, and quick to hysteria.
– MRS. WHITE – 35–59 – A morbid, and tragic woman. Mrs. White may or may not be the murderer of her five ex-husbands.
– COLONEL MUSTARD – 35–69 – A puffy, pompous, dense, blowhard of a military man.
– PROFESSOR PLUM – 35–55 – An arrogant academic, easily impressed by himself.
– MR. GREEN – 25–45 – A timid yet officious rule follower. He’s awfully anxious.

SUPPORTING CHARACTERS: The following roles vary in size and will NOT be called to every rehearsal.
– YVETTE – 20–35 – A loyal and sexy French maid with her own secret aspirations. Must be comfortable wearing a skimpy French maid outfit on stage. Speaks with a French accent.
– ENSEMBLE 1 – 25–55 – Plays the following roles: MR. BODDY: a slick, Frank Sinatra, film noir-esque type fella. (Alive and Dead), THE MOTORIST: a benign gentleman who rings the wrong doorbell. (Alive and Dead), and CHIEF OF POLICE: a cop who helps to save the day.
– ENSEMBLE 2 – 25–55 – Plays the following roles: THE “BROKEN DOWN CAR” COP: a regular Joe (Alive and Dead), BACKUP COP: backup for the chief, AUXILIARY MUSTARD: the back of Colonel Mustard during a scene of theatrical trickery.
