HYDE PARK – The Lamoille County Players are welcoming audiences back to the Hyde Park Opera House for their 70th season on stage. Their opening show is the murder mystery “Clue: On Stage,” based on the board game and cult classic Paramount Pictures movie, “Clue.” Performances run May 6 to 8, and 13 to 15. Evening shows are at 7 p.m., on Fridays and Saturdays. Matinees are Sundays at 2 p.m.

It’s a dark and stormy night, as the old saying goes, perfectly describing the opening to “Clue: On Stage.” Director Holly Biracree, with the help of her cast and artistic team, transport you into the infamous Boddy Manor. Asked to come under an alias, The Guests enter as the now infamous characters; Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mr. Green, Mrs. White, Colonel Mustard, and Mrs. Peacock, and are ushered into The Hall. Weapons are handed out, and Wadsworth the Butler leads the cast throughout the various rooms in an ever-escalating mystery.

Biracree states “I wanted to bring “Clue” to the stage even before it was a play. To bring to life the board game that many of us played as children, or the movie we watched with friends and family. Take a break from your everyday lives and enjoy a couple of hours of comedy, mayhem and mystery. Consider, as you sit back on a dark and stormy night in 1954… who did it, in what room and with what weapon?”
