There's a one of a kind musical happening now at the Helen Hocker Theater through August 5th! Youth ages 13 to 18 are cast in the unique "Clue: The Musical." Each show has the opportunity to be different, as three members from the audience are asked to pick cards that decide the murder mystery scenario of murderer, weapon and room, just like the game, Clue. The cards are kept hidden from the audience for an important and entertaining reason! Once the scenario is picked at random, the actors portray various scenes and the audience guesses what scenario was picked at the end! Tickets start at $11. Find out more now!
