Dakota Stage Ltd. is thrilled to present Clue, the Musical, a hilarious comedic musical based upon the Parker Bros board game. Performances are October 5-7 and 12-14 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, October 15 at 2:00 PM. Audiences play along to discover the weapon, room and killer  The music is influenced by classic jazz and swing, and it’s reminiscent of the music you would hear in an old murder mystery movie.  Tickets can be purchased online at www.dakotastageltd.com, by calling the box office at 701-258-4998, or at the theater box office before each performance.

Was it Miss Scarlet in the billiards room with the rope? Or perhaps Colonel Mustard in the kitchen with the knife? This deathly funny musical brings to life six colorful suspects, six familiar rooms, and six famous murder weapons for 216 possible solutions! And the audience gets to help solve the mystery! Watch for clues in the comic antics of the suspects, listen for clues in the witty lyrics, and work alongside a hard-nosed detective to see if you can unravel the truth. Who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room, and with what weapon? You’ve played the board game, now come play our live action version!  At the beginning of the show three audience volunteers will each choose a card representing the weapon, the room, and the killer. These will be placed in a confidential envelope on stage, only Mr. Boddy, the narrator and victim, knows the truth. As the play progresses, Mr. Boddy will offer clues to the audience, who can keep track of their suspicions on a provided scorecard. No two shows will be the same!
