Coronado Playhouse closes its 2021 main stage season with “Clue,” based on the popular board game, performing live from Friday, Nov. 5 through Sunday, Dec. 12.

On a dark and stormy night, six oddball guests, a butler and a maid, assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! Soon the guests are racing to find the killer and keep the body count from stacking up. Join the iconic Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard as they race to find the murderer and out game each other. 

The stage adaptation is lovingly based on the original cult classic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue. The writers include Jonathan Lynn, who directed the original movie, Broadway star and director Hunter Foster, who directed the world premiere of “Clue on Stage,” Sandy Rustin and Eric Price. Coronado Playhouse is excited to welcome back seasoned director, Desha Crownover, to the project.

This hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery will keep you guessing, and laughing, until the final twist as you try to figure out…who did it, where and with what!

When blackmail and murder are on the menu, everyone is a suspect.

Single tickets are available for the remaining shows of the season. Subscriptions for the 2022 season are available now. Please contact the box office.

Part of Coronado Playhouse’s mission is to give back to the community. For each show, Coronado Playhouse partners with a local non-profit to raise awareness and funds in support of their work. For this production, the Playhouse is focusing on raising awareness and funds for the San Diego Police Officers Association’s Widows & Orphans Fund.

Also, in honor of the Playhouse’s 75th anniversary, they are inviting you to join the 75 for 75 campaign. For only $75, you will be helping Coronado Playhouse stay afloat in this pivotal year and your name will be added to a list of founders that intend to keep the Playhouse moving for the next 75 years. The goal is to raise a minimum of $7,500 for the year. With your support, we intend to continue to inspire audiences, young and old, to see the world in new ways.
