Manitowoc theater group Masquers stages Clue at Capitol Civic Centre

MANITOWOC – Colonel Mustard killed Miss Scarlet with the lead pipe in the Billiard Room.

This line originated from one game, the indisputable game of murder and mystery — Clue.

Nostalgic. Iconic. It is a game and a franchise, beloved by millions.

Manitowoc’s The Masquers community theater group will bring a bit of that nostalgia to the Capitol Civic Center with its production of “Clue: On Stage.” Performances are May 12-14.

Birth of a cult classic

In 1943, the creation of one of the world’s most beloved board games was derived from an English musician and factory worker.

In Birmingham, England, while holed up in his home as air raids bored the city, Anthony E. Pratt and his wife, Elva, killedom with a fun little game they created.
