Children’s Theater Company presents ‘Teen Detective’
The Hoboken Children’s Theater Company will present “Brenda Bly: Teen Detective” this coming weekend. The show, rated PG, is fun for the whole family. The Hoboken Children’s Theater Company produces professional level musicals with teens from all around Hudson County. In the cast of this production of “Brenda Bly: Teen Detective,” Hoboken, Weehawken, Bayonne, and Jersey City are represented.
The plot: It’s 1958, a time of rock and roll, space discovery, and great hope for a bright future. But trouble is brewing at the Whitney Ellis Private School for Girls. Only days away from the opening night of the school musical, “Rocket Girl,” the leading lady is knocked unconscious with a sandbag. It is up to our favorite teenage sleuth, Brenda Bly, to solve the crime, catch the crook and save the day. Great music, comic performances, and HCTC’s trademark harmonies will have you coming back again.
