Need a mystery
solved? "Nate the Great" is at your service. Theatreworks/USA
presents a new musical production about this spunky, pint-size detective
at MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Saturday, Nov. 22 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey
Theatre is located on the college's West
Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Based on Marjorie Weinman Sharmot's popular children's book series,
Theatreworks/USA sets the stage for mastermind Nate as he unravels
mysteries in the tradition of Sherlock Holmes, Nero Wolfe and Charlie
Chan. Nate has built a first-rate reputation in the neighborhood
for finding lost balloons, books, slippers, chickens, and even a
goldfish. When his neighbor, Annie, asks for help in locating her
missing painting, Nate must draw on all of his skills to decipher
the toughest case of his career. While Nate has always believed
that great detectives work alone, he finds that solving the case
is easier - and a lot more fun! - with a partner. Young audiences
will enjoy the adventure while learning lessons of teamwork and
Theatreworks/USA, based in New York City, is America's largest and
most prolific professional not-for-profit theatre for young and
