|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 6:00pm, repeating until May 15, 2019


SteppingStone Theatre is very proud to announce auditions for Nate the Great: the Musical! For this production, we’re looking for young actors between the ages of 12-19.

Junior detective Nate the Great has a new case! His friend Annie has just painted a picture, and she can’t find it anywhere. Armed with an appetite for justice and pancakes, Nate vows to solve this baffling elementary school mystery. From the creator of Goosebumps: Phantom of the Auditorium, John Maclay, this new musical will delight fans of mysteries, Sondheim, and the long running book series by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat.
