Festival planners place bets that “Clue” night will provide a good time
“A Spring Literary Arts Festival: The Plot Thickens” in McArthur will officially begin at 7:30 p.m. April 13 with a roll of the dice as guests at “The Tudor Mansion” are invited to the McArthur VFW to play the game “Clue” along with blackjack, roulette, poker and enjoy food, a cash bar, and music provided by the Artisan Jazz Trio, a group based in Columbus that performs instrumental jazz standards.
There are probably few who haven’t played one of the many versions of the Clue game, which has players strategically move around a game board’s “mansion” in the guise of one of six characters (Colonel Mustard, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, or Mrs. Peacock) as they try to deduce which character suspect murdered Mr. Boddy with which weapon and in what room the murder took place.
Local dealers will tempt players to take a chance at the casino tables, while they enjoy food and beverages sold by the VFW. Whether it’s for listening pleasure or dancing, the Artisan Jazz Trio will provide entertainment that is sure to please with such standards as “Fly Me To The Moon,” “All of Me,” “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “Take the A Train,” “Misty” and “The Girl from Ipanema.”
“Clue” game costumes are encouraged for fun, but they are not required for admission. Admission is $5, and tickets will be on sale at the library and at the door that evening.
