Actors: A murder most foul has been committed…two in fact!  We have rounded up the Clue-sual suspects for this musical, mystery romp. Our company practices non-traditional casting.  Our actors are ensemble players, all working together. This is an audience participation show, so we value performers who can totally commit to staying ‘in character’ the entire night. We seek collaborators with a complete dedication to our Mission Statement, “We create happiness.” You may not be the best singer or dancer in the world, but if you can make us laugh, you may be the right person for the part.
