Jigsaw Jones Solves Mystery at Westport Country Playhouse


Westport Country Playhouse will present A Jigsaw Jones Mystery – The Case of the Class Clown, as part of its Family Festivities Series on Sunday, March 6, at 1 and 4 pm. Recommended for grades 1-4, the production is a mystery with music, based on the book by renowned author James Preller, produced by ArtsPower. Tickets are $15.

The mystery begins with an unknown class clown playing practical jokes in school. Athena Lorenzo has been slimed and she doesn't think it's very funny. Theodore “Jigsaw” Jones claims to be the very first detective in the whole school. It's up to Jigsaw and his friend Mila to investigate the sliming and track down the class clown. This could be their stickiest case yet!

Pre-show activities begin one hour before the performances at noon and 3 pm. Birthday party facilities may be scheduled in advance. Everyone in the audience requires a ticket. Groups of 10 or more save up to 30percent off the regular ticket price. For group sales information call (203) 227-5137, x120.

An upcoming Family Festivities presentation is Click, Clack, Moo, Sunday, March 27, 1 and 4 pm., a hilarious musical based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin, produced by TheatreWorks USA.
