Two brilliant actors bring a classic story to life. Young Emil is traveling by train when a nefarious stranger makes off with the family’s hard-won money. Recruiting a crew of fellow children to help hunt down the thief, Emil sets out to right a wrong with grit and determination. With projections, shadow puppets, and unerring storytelling instincts, Slingsby Theatre Company will have your kids—and you, too—cheering for Emil’s band of crime solving friends.
