‘Clue: On Stage’ performances to begin this evening at COA Elizabeth City; First 2022-23 season production

College of The Albemarle’s “Clue: On Stage” will begin this evening, October 27. This is the first 2022-2023 season production for the College of The Albemarle Student Theatre (COAST).

“Clue: On Stage” is based on the Paramount film and the Hasbro board game; the stage show is adapted from the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn with additional material by Hunter Foster, Sandy Rustin and Eric Price.

The show is described as a “murder-mystery comedy thriller” that follows six guests at a mysterious dinner party who find themselves implicated as murder suspects when their host becomes deceased.

Wadsworth, the butler, leads Mrs. Peacock, Mr. Green, Colonel Mustard, and other guests in an attempt to solve the mystery. Following the film’s footsteps, the project bills itself as a “comedy whodunit.”

  • October 27 – 10:00 a.m.
