When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by the Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!

The first Cinderella story to be written down, in around the year 850 A.D., Cinderella Stories Logo 2

was the Chinese tale of Yeh-hsien. Even earlier, nearly two thousand years ago,

a Greek writer told of an Egyptian king who searched for the unknown owner of a beautiful sandal.

Our journey takes us to the European tales in the 1600s - to the early 1900s where fanciful dresses, magical animals, and of course evil stepmothers, or sometimes fathers, strike their vengeance on our lovely maidens

Each workshop is one week, one country and one story to tell. Join us for one, two or all three!

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”
