Be honest! This is important for scheduling rehearsals!
Be familiar with the story. Sides will be available for cold reading from the script.
It would be beneficial if you work up character traits, quirks, physicality, etc for the parts you are auditioning for. This can enhance your readings and you may be asked to use characters with improv.

The classic board game is brought to life in Clue: On Stage! Six guests are invited to a dinner party thrown by an anonymous host. They are given aliases–Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum, and Miss Scarlet. Though discouraged from revealing personal information, it is soon discovered that all of them have fallen victim to the same blackmailer, their very host of the evening. Each is presented with a weapon and an option: pay their extortionist double, or kill the innocent butler. What follows is a madcap, slapstick evening full of murder, mystery, and laughs as they seek to puzzle out the culprit amongst criminals.
Wadsworth – M – A traditional British butler in every sense: uptight, formal and “by the book.” He is the driving force in the play.
Yvette – F – A sexy, French Maid, with her own secret aspirations. (Also plays THE REPORTER in the final scene).
Miss Scarlet – F – A dry, sardonic D.C. Madam who is more interested in secrets than sex.
Mrs. Peacock – F – The church-going wife of a Senator. A bit batty, neurotic, and quick to hysteria.
Mrs. White – F – A pale, morbid, and tragic woman. Mrs. White may or may not be the murderer of her five late husbands.
Colonel Mustard – M – A puffy, pompous, dense, blow-hard of a military man.
Professor Plum – M – An academic Casanova who woos women.
Mr. Green – M – A timid, yet officious, rule follower. He’s a bit of a klutz and awfully anxious.
Also, two Ensemble roles for a male and a female featuring multiple parts for both.
