BWW JR:  SAMANTHA SPADE, ACE DETECTIVE: THE CASE OF THE MALTBALL FALCON

BWW JR:  SAMANTHA SPADE, ACE DETECTIVE: THE CASE OF THE MALTBALL FALCONSamantha is a lonely kid who prowls the rain-washed streets of her film-noir fantasies as SAMANTHA SPADE, ACE DETECTIVE, the go-to gumshoe who always solves the case (for $25 a day plus Twizzlers). TADA! Youth Theater will be presenting the world premier of this original family musical performed by kids for kids, from April 26-May 18.

Ever since she can remember, playwright and lyricist Lisa Diana Shapiro has had a "thing" for Humphrey Bogart and classic film-noir. She teamed up with composer Georgia Stitt to create a shy, misfit girl who imagines a black & white world where she gets to crack wise, wear a swell fedora, find the clues and track down the bad guys, using nothing more than her own powers of observation and imagination -- plus song and dance.

You can meet Samantha Spade during this short film featuring a song from the show entitled Slingin' the Slang:

"Slingin' the Slang," based on a number from Samantha Spade, Ace Detective, a new musical by Lisa Diana Shapiro (book and lyrics) and Georgia Stitt (music). Samantha Spade, Ace Detective opens Off-Broadway on April 26, 2014, at TADA! Youth Theater.

The show runs April 26th through May 18th and is recommended for kids ages 6 and up. For tickets visit the theatre's or call (212) 252-1619.
