Play title "Nancy Drew" with magnify class.


Who – or what – is frightening the Spencer family at the Old Van Pelt Estate? Is it the spirit of their daughter Althea or something more sinister?

Will the show go on at the Log Cabin Theatre, home of the Footlighters, or will the temperamental star, Tammi Whitlock, wreak havoc on the cast and crew?

And what will Emily Spencer, young heiress, do when she receives the diamonds on her 18th birthday?

Who will solve these mysteries? NANCY DREW, GIRL DETECTIVE, of course! Don’t miss the fun of sleuthing with our talented cast and crew.

Theatre performances during a pandemic can present challenges but also open up new opportunities. Villa Duchesne thespians will perform Nancy Drew, Girl Detective outdoors on our beautiful campus with scenes staged at a number of locations around the 1929 Main Building. The audience will be guided to each new setting by costumed ushers playing the role of backstage crew at the production. Walking will be required with seating available at each of the settings. 

Performances are scheduled for Saturday, October 24, and Sunday, October 25, at 2 pm and 4 pm each day. The play is expected to run approximately 45 minutes. Tickets are free but must be reserved in advance to ensure that we stay within the current St. Louis County limit for gatherings. Due to the limited number of tickets available, please reserve your seating for only one performance. No actual tickets will be issued; a list of all online reservations will be at the box office prior to each show.
