What they've said

"Mystery in the Library - Fairytale Version" was written for a school group of students in Joplin, Missouri, USA. They called it "Merry Mystery Theater". They used the version for 17. The organizer - a parent and former school teacher - sent the following feedback:

"It was not until we were in high gear with it that I came to realize how dynamic it was. It integrated several more essential skills than I was aware of (reading, analytical thinking, acting, imagination, pattern recognition, team work, to name a few). I feel that drama has a definite place in curriculum design, since it calls on both the left and right brain."

At another school in the US, Terri Lawler, a teacher who helped organise a similar event for 30 children, wrote:

"Stephanie - the dinner was a fabulous success!! We did one act per hour. The parents decorated four rooms (forest, castle, spooky, library) and you would not believe how they looked! The kids were stunned because it didn't even look like classrooms. The kids were allowed to come late to school dressed and in character. We were on the tv news! We served an appetizer the first hour, salad, the second hour, entree the third hour, and dessert the fourth. The parents were waitresses and waitors and the kids were served sitting down. We had a bell to ring when Sherlock was getting ready to ask a question. Thank you for all your help. It was awesome!."

A set of 4 versions of "Mystery In The Library" with different endings are available for school activities.
