Herbert L. Williams Theatre
Theatre on the Bay Choir Room, T-133B
UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus

Theatre on the Bay will be hosting open auditions for adult actors 18+. Interested adult actors should be prepared to do a cold read of the script. Prepared monologues are optional. Rehearsals will begin in March. Performances are May 2-5, 2024.

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, "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 Scarlet, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up.
