Ruby and the Ruby is a play in Club Penguin. It is a mystery story about a 'stolen' ruby. It is unique in the way that it has a hidden background, a hidden pin (which you can get by following the clues in the Script) and a secret playbill in the Penguin Times (which you can see if you click the right things).

Story[edit]

The Stage during the play

Private detective Jacques Hammer has a nose for sniffing out trouble. One night, in the middle of terrible thunderstrom, the fiery Ms. Ruby turns up in his office with a problem. There's a missing gemstone, and Jacques is the man to find it. As he's looking around for clues, a fishy looking character turns up outside. Maybe he's got answers for Jacques...
