    The University of Scranton Players will present Clue: stay at home edition based on the cult movie, based off the classic board game on Friday, Nov. 6, and Friday, Nov. 13, at 8 p.m. via Broadway On Demand. Both performances are free and open to the public. This version of Clue is based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn, written by Sandy Rustin, with additional Material by Hunter Foster and Eric Price with original music by David Abbinanti, and directed by Michael O’Steen.

    Viewers can access the Nov. 6, live stream at: https://bit.ly/3oWnuXu  and the Nov. 13, live stream at: https://bit.ly/38bv4aJ. Viewers will need to create a free Broadway on Demand log in to view the production.

    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. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out who did it, where and with what.
