Bergen County Players presents 'Clue'

(ORADELL, NJ) — Bergen County Players (BCP), one of America’s longest-running little theater companies, presents the zany, hilarious madcap comedy CLUE, opening on October 29. Under the direction of Bill Kaufman, this fast-paced laugh riot adapted from the hit 1985 film, which in turn was adapted from the classic board game, “is mostly silly and engagingly fun. Chock full of physical comedy, sight gags, and dorky goodness, this board game come to life is a wonderful distraction from 21st century realities.” Performances will take place at the Little Firehouse Theatre, 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell, October 29 through November 19.

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, CLUE is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. 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, they all become suspects. Led by Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. CLUE is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT weapon!

CLUE will be directed by Bill Kaufman, whose previous directing credits at BCP include A Comedy of Tenors, Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella. “Clue is an old fashioned crowd pleaser. It provides mystery, suspense, and hilarious comedy all at the same time. This cast is made up of crazy actors who have kept me laughing throughout the rehearsal process. The audience is in for a rip-roaring good time!”
