"From The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler"
Comes to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Oct. 28


Kids are on the case when "From The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" comes to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre. Based on the E.L. Kronigsburg Newbery Medal-winning book, the show is presented by ArtsPower National Touring Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 28 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is conveniently located on the college's West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.

ArtsPower has created a delightful drama that follows Claudia Kincaid and her brother Jamie as they run away to the Metropolitan Museum of Art - and right into the middle of a major museum mystery. As they seek to discover the origins of one of the museum's prized new statues, they make a most unusual friend in the eccentric, strong-minded Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. With her help they learn lessons of friendship, self-discovery and responsibility. The show was adapted and directed by ArtsPower artistic director Greg Gunning.
