About this show

What if you could meet your favorite person from history? What if you met your favorite person from history when they were a kid? From famous historical figures like the Martin Luther King, Jr. to a more personal encounter between a young woman and her Japanese-American grandmother during WWII, TADA!'s winter musical brings history to life in an exciting, musical adventure. The History Mystery begins with another average day in study hall that soon turns into a fantastic journey of the mind as three students, Toni, Marty and Jenny, bored by the "textbook" examination of the past imagine for themselves important moments in history. Along the way they meet Martin Luther King, Jr., the Wright Brothers, Eleanor Roosevelt and many others. They soon discover that history is much more than what they learn in school?it's who they are. The show boasts a book by TADA! Executive and Artistic Director Janine Nina Trevens, lyrics by Margaret Rose; and music by TADA! Resident Musical Director Eric Rockwell. Janine Nina Trevens directs. Additional performances: Friday, December 19 at 7 p.m. (special opening night benefit performance); Monday, December 29; Tuesday, December 30; Wednesday, December 31; Friday, January 2; Monday, January 19 at noon and 2 p.m.
