Please prepare a 1-minute comic monologue of your choice, as well as memorizing the director selected monologue(s) for the character(s) for which you are auditioning. Director selected monologues are available for download on our website by clicking on the audition resources link above.
All auditioners will also be asked to stay and read from the script with other auditioners.
Please note that while many people are familiar with the 1985 film, we are hoping actors will bring their own interpretation to the CLUE characters, and not replicate the film performances.
If you are unable to make all the performances, mandatory tech week (October 30-November 3, 2022) or midweek rehearsals (November 9 & 16, 2022), we will be unable to cast you in this show. Rehearsals will begin Wednesday, September 7 and run Sundays (6-9), Mondays (7-10) and Wednesdays (7-10).
