Lights, camera, action! The Racine Theatre Guild is back again to present the community with another entertaining performance. “Clue: On Stage” will run from March 18 until April 3 at the Racine Theatre Guild, 2519 Northwestern Ave.

This performance is based on the film and board game, Clue or as it is known internationally, Cluedo. This madcap murder mystery is based on both the Hasbro board game and Paramount Pictures film. The game Clue, or Cluedo, was first developed in 1943 and began manufacturing in 1949. The board game inspired the film “Clue,” which was released in 1985. Originally a box office flop, however, it then gained a following and has since become a cult classic.

Thunder crashes, lightning flashes, and rain pours as a cast of mysterious characters gather for a dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. Each is given a familiar alias – Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum, and Miss Scarlet. When their host mysteriously turns up dead, they all suddenly become a suspect. In a slapstick evening full of madcap murder and mystery, it is a race around the board to solve the puzzle as the body count continues to rise.
