Was it Miss Scarlet in the billiards room with the rope? Or perhaps Colonel Mustard in the kitchen with the knife?

This deathly funny musical brings to life six colorful suspects, six familiar rooms, and six famous murder weapons for 216 possible solutions! And the audience gets to help solve the mystery!

No two shows will be the same!

The show is directed by Jayna Fitzsimmons, an assistant professor in the theatre department, where she teaches theatre history, acting, improvisation, playwriting and introduction to theatre. Fitzsimmons is the artistic director of Bare Bodkins, a professional Sioux Falls-based Shakespeare company. She is assisted by junior Katelyn Luze from Wellington, Colorado.
