It certainly is no mystery that the board game “Clue” has long been one of the most popular board games for generations. All ages enjoy playing detective in this murder-mystery game, and this month it will be brought to the Columbia Junior High Performing Arts Center stage when Fife High School presents its spring play “Clue: The Musical.”
Audiences will be invited to help solve the mystery too, which will add a unique and highly enjoyable twist to the fun-filled theater experience of comic antics, witty lyrics and a beguiling score.
“It's a really fun show, with a different ending every night. Just like in the board game, three cards will be chosen at the beginning of each show and the audience gets to play along to try to figure out the murderer, weapon and room,” said Fife Drama Director Breanne Keys, noting that detective notes will be provided in the play programs.
Keys said that once she read the script, she knew that it would make for a wonderful challenge for her theater students, and the audience involvement is an added bonus.
“Fife is so community oriented that we wanted something the audience can participate in too. Everybody gets to be involved.”
She said the students are doing an amazing job, and audiences are in for a memorable night. “I’m so proud of them. This is the most committed group of kids I’ve ever met.”
Tickets for “Clue: The Musical” are just $8 at the door. Bring along a few extra bucks for concessions at intermission and for the “Break-A-Leg” $1 fundraiser – all proceeds go back into the high school’s drama program.

Sat., May 13, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Fri., May 19, 7 p.m.
