Why we do what we do

Play with us!

Mystery of the Green Teeth Ghost | Saturday, August 8 & 9  at  2 p.m.

Join us on Zoom August 8 or 9 for a mystery where EVERY child gets to play a role! Based on our popular production of Mystery of the Green Teeth Ghost, this interactive play will have children ages 8 to 11 reading short scripts and gathering clues as they figure out whodunnit. Costume pieces and props are encouraged! Come join us in Eerie Cove where Detective Cindy Sharpe will lead you through the interactive fun!

With Holly Hepp-Galvan, writer and theatre-for-youth facilitator, your child will join other young people online to participate in a mystery play. Once you purchase a ticket, your child is assigned a role in advance and can prepare a prop or costume or set (as simple or elaborate as they wish) to bring into the world of the Zoomed play. We will email you lines for each character to introduce themselves at the opening of the performance, and everyone has a few lines of dialogue to read in the play. Basic reading skills suffice. The group works together to solve the case in Zoom's chat feature and Zoom Rooms during this 75-minute interactive performance.

Tickets are only $14 per child and the experience starts at 2 p.m. 

The limited 16 tickets for each performance will go quickly, so reserve for you and a friend today!

where creativity thrives, where new dramatic literature is created, where general education is supported, where artists find a creative home, and where no child is turned away because of an inability to pay for a ticket."
