It's a dark and stormy night, and you've been invited to a very unusual dinner party. Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well . . . dead.

So whodunnit?

Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacks up. Based on the cult classic film and the popular board game, Clue is a madcap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist.

A huge shout out to our Orange Beach Public Works department for building the amazing set - a two-story mansion, shown above - for Clue: On Stage

“Clue: On Stage” 

Adapted from the Paramount Pictures film written by Jonathan Lynn and the board game from Hasbro, Inc. 

Written by Sandy Rustin, based upon the works by Jonathan Lynn, Hunter Foster, Eric Price.

Produced by special arrangement with The Araca Group, Work Light Productions, and Michael Barra/Lively McCabe Entertainment.
Produced by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing. (

Welcome to the Clue mansion! Enter if you dare. The City of Orange Beach Expect Excellence Community Theatre can't wait to fill the room with laughter, lightning... and a murder or two.
