One Night Only! “CLUE: The Musical” At Beck Center Benefits AIDS Taskforce
Beck Center for the Arts proudly presents the AIDS Taskforce’s production of CLUE: The Musical at 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 27 on the Mackey Main Stage. Based on the classic board game by Parker Brothers, this benefit production features many favorite performers from the Cleveland theater community. Tickets are now on sale. All proceeds benefit the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland.
Directed by Curt Arnold with musical direction by Butch Marshall and choreography by Allison Butler, CLUE: The Musical includes a comic cast of well-known area actors including Tricia Bestic, Brian Bowers, Patrick Ciamacco, Amiee Collier, Dan Folino, Dana Hart, Jonathan Kronenberger, and Rachel Spence. Music Director Butch Marshall leads band members Gregory Cross (percussion), Vicki Hamm (cello) and Tim Keo (bass) in playing the show’s many toe-tapping tunes.
Like the popular Parker Brothers game, CLUE: The Musical tries to solve the mystery of Mr. Boddy’s murder. The audience plays along, trying to figure out which of the suspects committed the crime, in what room, and with what weapon. Match your wits against fellow audience sleuths as you analyze the clues presented by the colorful characters – Miss Scarlett, Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Professor Plum, and Mrs. Peacock. Music, merriment and mayhem abound, as the clues are revealed and the audience attempts to solve the crime.
There's no way to know what will happen next in CLUE: The Musical. Even the cast doesn't always know what's going to happen next! But from past sold-out shows, AIDS Taskforce benefit organizers know that people will be talking about CLUE: The Musical for a long time after they leave the theater. Don't miss out, buy your tickets today!
General admission tickets are $25. VIP and sponsor level tickets are also available. Tickets may be purchased online at aidstaskforce.org or by calling Rebecca Murray-Strong at 216.621.0766 x232.
CLUE: The Musical is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., with the book by Peter DiPietro, music by Galen Blum, Wayne Parker and Vinnie Martucci, lyrics by Tom Chiodo. Equity actors Tricia Bestic, Dan Folino and Dana Hart appear courtesy of the Actors' Equity Association (AEA), the union of actors and stage managers, through Theatre Authority, Inc.
