Emil and the Detectives comes to QPAC next month in an outstanding piece of children’s theatre featuring a streetwise city kid and a sinister stranger.

Based on Erich Kästner’s 1929 novella, this story broke ground for the independent-children-versus-devious-adults genre. This production is an uplifting, riveting and empowering look at the value of teamwork and friendships, taking risks, and the empowerment of young people. A theatrical delight for young and old, not to be missed.
