Theatre Arlington presents The Adventures of Nate the Great
On a darkened stage, a tall figure in a trench coat and fedora blows a warm jazz refrain on a saxophone followed by ... the “cool” and very serious, Nate the Great, the sharpest kid detective ever to solve his neighborhood's mysteries. With his faithful dog, Sludge, and his friends, he solves important cases, always remembering to leave a note for his mother and wear his galoshes. It's the Our Gang comedies meet Raymond Chandler. It's a spoof of "B" movie mysteries. It's a perspective of a child's vision of life's everyday mysteries, when past, present and future all combine to create a wonderful now.
