Kansas City, MO October 10, 2014 – Fresh from
celebrating its 40th anniversary of providing
quality children's programming to Kansas City's
young people on October 4th with a spectacular
gala, Theatre for Young America opens its 41st
season with a favorite children's tale, The
Adventures of Nate the Great. The play will run
from October 21 through November 15, 2014 on the
H&R Block City Stage, on level B in Union Station.
Union Station is located at 30 W. Pershing Road in
Kansas City, Missouri 64108.
Pamela Sterling, former Coterie Artistic Director,
adapted this comic mystery from the famous Nate
the Great series of books by award-winning writer
Marjorie Weinman Sharmat. As Nate dons a trench
coat and a Sherlock Holmes hat to investigate
mysteries, his adventures are depicted in a film
noir style, complete with a jazz music background.
Nate's trusty dog Sludge and his friend Rosamond
team up with Nate to use their brains and problem-
solving skills to find all the answers to
children's most pressing questions. But even as
"the greatest kid detective" solves important
cases, he always remembers to leave a note for
this mother and to wear his galoshes.
Valerie M. Mackey directs this adventurous tale.
The cast includes: Wil Andrews-Weiss, Adrian
Foster, Hannah Freeman, Mia Hedgpeth-Guerra, Sara
Kennedy, Evan Lovelace, Parry Luellen, and
Alexandria Washington. Xanda Pilley stage manages.
