General Information

LBMT is looking to cast its upcoming production of Clue: The Musical. The show will be presented virtually and in-person for three performances from October 30-31 with limited audiences. Auditions, rehearsals, and performances will be adhering to current COVID-19 protocols set in place by the Province of Ontario and Ottawa Public Health. Audition and rehearsals will be outdoors until the end of September. The show is being directed by Joy Mwandemange, stage-managed by Laura Dorothy Walker, and produced by Mathieu Charlebois with support from Morgan Coughlan.

Audition Information

Dates and Times:

  • Thursday, August 12: 6pm and 8pm
  • Sunday, August 15: 2pm, 3pm, and 4pm

If you are not available the audition dates but would like to still audition, please select “Not Available” on the audition form. We will contact you to make alternate arrangements.

Location: 1630 Abbey Road (off Alta-Vista Drive)

Please prepare 32 bars of a musical theatre song that fits the style of the show and best demonstrates your vocal abilities.

You will receive a short scene that you might be asked to read during your audition (it will be a cold read). Please look it over prior to your audition time. Note: You do not need to memorize the scene. You may be given further instruction about the scene by the director at your audition. You may also not be required to read the scene at all.

A dance/movement segment of the audition may be required for all those auditioning. To ensure social distancing, these will be done in pairs. Please come wearing dance appropriate clothing, as you will not be able to change at the audition.

A session of callback auditions may be held on Monday, August 16 at the discretion of the artistic team and may only require certain individuals. They are not an indication of whether you will be cast in the show, or are up for receiving a specific role in the production. Callbacks may not be required if the artistic team does not feel they are necessary for casting the production.

Please submit the audition application at the bottom of the page, if you would like to audition for the show. Because of some mature content in the show, we will only be casting those who are at least 18 years of age.

Show Synopsis

The internationally popular game is now a fun-filled musical that brings the world’s best-known suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery: who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room, and with what weapon. The audience receives forms to help them deduce the solution from clues given throughout the fun-filled evening. Three audience members choose from cards representing the potential murderers, weapons, and rooms; there are 216 possible solutions! Only one hard-nosed female detective is qualified to unravel the merry mayhem. Comic antics, witty lyrics, and a beguiling score carry the investigation from room to room. Even after the culprit confesses, a surprise twist delights the audience. This colourful crowd-pleaser was devised by the authors of Murder at Rutherford House and other popular interactive entertainments.
