Narrabundah College Theatre Arts will present Cluedo the Musical, an original work by Hannah Tonks and Eric Butler, with an original score by Steven Bailey and students of the Music Department. This original musical, inspired by the popular board game, “Cluedo”, will feature those popular characters, Mr. Body, Mrs. White, Mrs. Peacock, Reverend Green, Colonel Mustard and Miss Scarlett as well as newcomers, the maid, Vivian, the butler Buttleby and the zany detective, Boddington.

Set in the Body Mansion, each character has a motive to wish the overbearing Mr. Body disposed of, but who actually has the means or the courage to carry out their evil deed. Is it Mrs. White with a revolver in the kitchen, or Miss Scarlett with a knife in the study or the Reverend Green with a candlestick in the Dining Room. Could it be Colonel Mustard with a rifle in the Ballroom or Professor Plum with a rope in the conservatory? Only the wily investigation by the detective and his constable will reveal the grim truth. Or will the audience guess it first and win the coveted door prize for their clever detective work?

Come and pit your wits against the cunning designs of these madcap characters and their desperate quest for the proceeds of the Body mansion, and enjoy a night of thrilling suspense, zany comedy, and song and dance shenanigans. This is a feast of fun for the entire family.

Cluedo the Musical has been devised by Year 11 and 12 students under the direction of former student, Blair Dutney, assisted by Year 12 students Thea van Veen and Matt Dudgeon. musical direction by former student, Steven Bailey, writer, composer and director of last year’s highly successful “Mime the Musical” and “Urinetown”. Steven has been assisted by Year 12 student, Lou Montgomery, with songs and music composed and written by Steven Bailey and Year 11 and 12 Music students.
