The popular theatre will be hosting the game-based play in November.

A Bucks County theatre will produce a play based off a popular board game throughout the month of November.

Bristol Riverside Theatre, located at 120 Radcliffe Street in Bristol Borough, will present the play “Clue” on various nights from Nov. 1 to Nov. 22. The play is based off the 1985 film, itself based off the popular board game that was created in 1949.

Get reintroduced to the infamous Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, and Colonel Mustard of the board game we all grew up playing. The comedy-murder mystery is based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn and written by Sandy Rustin. Additional material by Hunter Foster and Eric Price. Original music for the show comes from Michael Holland.

“Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well . . . dead,” a description of the play read. “So whodunnit?”

Nov. 1 through Nov. 2 are the preview performances. Nov 3 will be opening night. Friday Festival will be celebrated before the show on Nov. 4, with desserts and snacks being provided by Loretta’s and drinks being provided by local breweries and distilleries. 

Before the Nov. 12 performance, audience members can enjoy a drink during Wine Down Wednesday, and beer and other drinks will be available before the performance on Nov. 17 during Thirsty Thursday.

The show will go on for three weeks at the Bristol Borough theatre, except for Mondays and Tuesdays.

Bristol Riverside Theatre has been showing fun and unique performances in Bucks County since 1986. Having produced 165 works and premiering 23 plays and musicals, the theater continues a long tradition of the arts in Bucks County.

During its 36 years of operation, the theatre has also received 84 nominations for the Barrymore Awards for Theatre Excellence.
