“Get a Clue” is a spoof of the board game with a twist.
“Murder on the Movie Set” is a 1940’s Hollywood film lot murder mystery comedy.
“A Ghostly Crime” is a murder-plot-and-séance-gone-wrong in the deep south.
Character Breakdown (all roles are open, however these are the ones we are looking to cast immediately)
Get a Clue:
Colonel Mustard- an absent minded secret agent. Think Maxwell Smart, but way dumber.
Mr. Boddee/ Stoo- a dual role/ 2 lead pace-setting characters. Mr. Boddee is a rich and arrogant man, who gives everyone a reason to have a desire to kill him. Stoo is a loveable security guard who ends up being the hero in the show.
Professor Plum- Mrs. Peacock’s brother. He is your average annoying, know-it-all nerd who is looking for love. Has a special fondness for Miss Scarlett.
Murder on the Movie Set:
Milo Fortnight- the extremely stressed out film director who is constantly struggling to keep his picture’s actors in check.
Matt Drillem- your typical, absent-minded, leading man who is having an affair with the film’s leading lady.
A Ghostly Crime:
Mary- the séance’s hostess. Very frail, and naïve.
Jeeves- the butler.
Teddy- Mary’s sneaky husband.
Terry- Mary’s best friend.
Eddy- Mary’s freeloading brother.
Madame Rue (played by a male actor)- the fortuneteller.
