Perseverance Theatre's Young Company Presents NANCY DREW, Beginning Friday
Join us on the Perseverance Theatre Second Stage for Marisha Chamberlain's adaptation of Carolyn Keene's Nancy Drew mystery: The Clue of the Dancing Puppet. Performances are at 7:30, April 26-27 and May 3-4, and at 2 pm Sunday April 28 and Sunday May 5.
The world's most famous girl detective is at it again! Another River Heights mystery has developed at the old Van Pelt Estate, home of the Footlighter's Barn Theater. Leander Van Pelt has died, and rumors abound of hidden cache of diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires that have been left somewhere on his estate. A mysterious ghost (or puppet?) has been haunting the estate while the Footlighters try to rehearse their play. Can Nancy Drew and her friends discover who is frightening the Van Pelt residents? Will the Footlighter's show be able to go on without their lead actress? And where are all of the gems that are to go to Leander Van Pelt's granddaughter? Nancy Drew leaves no stone unturned in this fun, campy whodunit!
Nancy Drew: Girl Detective will run two weekends: April 26-28, and May 3-5. Performances are at 7:30, April 26-27 and May 3-4, and at 2 pm Sunday April 28 and Sunday May 5. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students, and will be available at the door.
