LOVELACE STUDIO THEATER

The Wallis has made the difficult but important decision to cancel or postpone all productions through May 31, 2020, including Emil and the Detectives. If you are a current ticket holder for this production, our Ticket Services office will be reaching out to you directly to discuss options available to you for your already-purchased tickets.


Never underestimate the determination of a child! Young Emil catches a train to visit family in the big city. Something valuable is stolen, but the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target. A group of quick-thinking and resourceful children rally around. Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the true criminal? In Slingsby’s award-winning signature style, Emil and The Detectives is told by two skilled actors immersed in smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds, and a cinematic score.
 
Recommended for adults and children ages 8+.

Running Time: One hour with no intermission.
