Murder Mystery Play ‘Clue’ on Stage at Sandburg Nov. 4-6

The Carl Sandburg College Humanities and Fine Arts Department presents its fall play, “Clue,” from Nov. 4-6 in the Fine Arts Theater (Room F118) on Sandburg’s Main Campus in Galesburg, 2400 Tom L. Wilson Blvd.


Written by Sandy Rustin and based on the classic board game of the same name, “Clue” is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery that includes multiple alternate endings. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, the guests suddenly turn into suspects.

Led by Wadsworth — the butler (played by Quinton Rakestraw) — Miss Scarlett (Samantha-Rose Brody), Professor Plum (Azaria Foshay), Mrs. White (Kaitlyn Pleshko), Mr. Green (Andrew Dortch), Mrs. Peacock (Erin Darling) and Colonel Mustard (Adam Chasteen) race to find the killer as the body count stacks up.

A free preview for students, faculty and staff with a Sandburg ID will take place at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 3. Show times for public performances are 7:30 p.m. Nov. 4-5 and 2 p.m. Nov. 6. Tickets are $5 each and are available at the door starting 30 minutes prior to each show.
