What ever did happen when Humpty Dumpty fell off that wall?

Our summer children's show cast is busy rehearsing so they can (hopefully) solve this age-old mystery!

Humpty Dumpty is Missing! Is an affectionate spoof of the private eye thrillers of the 1940s and 50s. This fun-filled play is an excellent way to introduce young audiences and performers to the classic genre. Sammy Scoop, the private-eye with the help of his sidekick Alice from Dallas, come up with the list of suspects: Mistress Mary, Rip Van Winkle, Henny Penny, Peter Rabbit and his sisters, Rapunzel and the Handsome Prince, just to name a few. A last minute visit from Mother Goose and Mother Hubbard help Sammy and Alice catch the criminal. In this children’s mystery show, a detective, with the help of many fairy tale characters tries to find out what really happened when Humpty Dumpty fell off that wall.
