The Playhouse Children’s Theater Company will open its newest production, “Trixie Solves The Mystery!”, Thursday, June 16 at 8 p.m. at The Playhouse, 107 Church St. The show will continue Fridays and Saturdays through June 25.

Trixie Blue, Happyvale Heights’ most famous teen detective, and her faithful chums set out to investigate ghostly Gravestead Manor where a wacky fortune teller and her cohorts have taken up residence. Strangers keep arriving — an off-the-wall archeologist; a crew of female plumbers; a troupe of Girl Scouts — but are any of them really who they say they are?

It turns out the Muldavian Crown Jewels are hidden somewhere inside Gravestead Manor and a frenzied chase ensues to find them including spies, counterspies, agents, counteragents and counter-counteragents. Will Trixie find the secret formula hidden inside the jewels … and will she have enough energy left over for prom night?

Seating is limited at The Playhouse, so call 338-5777 for reservations. Tickets will be $5 at the door.
