Staff Report

Nov. 8-11, Rockford Auburn Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) High School presents their International Thespian Festival competition piece Clue: The Musical.

Based off the classic board game, the show will have the audience on the edge of their seats as everyone tries to figure out just who killed Mr. Boddy. With 216 possible endings, it could have been anyone.

As the audience attempts to solve the mystery along with the cast, everyone is suspect. Perhaps it was Mrs. White with the rope in the kitchen? Or Mr. Boddy’s maid, who would do anything to relieve herself of her wretched life in the manor? However, it could have been Mrs. Peacock with the candlestick in the lounge, as she does have a habit of marrying for money.

Spend an evening of murder, mystery, romance and comedy at Rockford Auburn High School’s auditorium, 5110 Auburn St., Rockford. Tickets are $5 for the 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 8, performance and the 2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 10, matinee, and $8 for the 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9-10, performances and 2 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 11, matinee.
