Clue (The Musical)

If you’ve ever played the boardgame Clue, you’ll want to check out Clue (The Musical) at the Fountain Community Theater.

Shows will be at 6:30 pm this Thursday through Saturday as well as next Friday and Saturday. There will also be a 2 pm show next Saturday. Tickets start at $9.
