The Little Detective Agency and the Case of the Festive Thief
17 NOV 2012 - 05 JAN 2013, Various Times
A Northern Stage Production
From the same team that brought you Shhh…A Christmas Story and The Little Boy Who Lost the Morning comes a brand new festive treat full of excitement, enchanting songs and a sprinkling of audience participation for the family. A Christmas treat for curious little ones and their confused grown ups.
Meet the Littles. A big sister and her baby brother. They are at Granny’s house for the Christmas holidays. It’s what they always do at Christmas.
Staying with granny is the best. She lives near the beach and a mysterious sounding place called Smugglers’ Cove (smugglers are a sort of pirate, says his big sister). When they stay with granny they sleep in a room called The Attic – it is has a window in the ceiling, is brilliant for hide and seek and has the biggest dressing up box ever, perfect for playing stories.
Their favourite ones are detective stories, looking for clues, using a magnifying glass and catching the baddies. This Christmas it turns out that granny is involved in a real life mystery, one that is confusing the adults a lot. It looks like only The Little Detective Agency will be able to solve the case and save their family.
And so the very first real case for the Little Detective Agency is set to take you and them on an unexpected adventure full of mysterious characters, baffled grown-ups and a very pesky festive thief.
Can you help us look for clues this Christmas? Two little detectives who would give Marple, Poirot and Sherlock and a run for their money.
