And the worst bartender in London.
Science doesn’t stand a chance.

Come and join in the Deathly FUN as Theatre 7 presents our season of Murder, Mystery and Mayhem!
The internationally popular game of Clue is now a fun-filled musical which brings the world’s best-known suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery: who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room and with what weapon? The audience receives forms to help them deduce the solution from clues given throughout the fun-filled evening. Three audience members are invited to choose from cards representing the potential murderers, weapons and rooms; there are 216 possible solutions! Only one hard-nosed female detective is qualified to unravel the merry mayhem.
Comic antics, witty lyrics and a beguiling score carry the investigation from room to room. Even after the culprit confesses, a surprise twist delights the audience. This colorful crowd pleaser was devised by the authors of Murder at Rutherford House and other popular interactive entertainments.
