Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries
Based on the beloved children’s cartoon, Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries takes audience members on a fun yet goose-bump-inducing jaunt as they watch the Mystery Inc. gang and their gumshoe great dane, Scooby-Doo, solve a brand-new case. The fashionable Daphne, preppy Fred, bookish Velma, spacy Shaggy, and of course, the easily frightened Scoob, all load up the Mystery Machine to race to the scene of the latest paranormal crime—a local theater haunted by a rascally ghost. As they break out into choreographed song-and-dance numbers, from the whimsical TV theme to original tunes such as “We’re Mystery Inc.” and “Round Every Corner,” the gang runs into a host of colorful characters in the form of a tap-dancing skeleton and a singing barbershop duo. Fans can expect well-known bits from the show, laughing in familiarity at Scooby-Doo’s broken English, the reveal of the culprit, and tips from Shaggy on how to grow a beard only on your chin.
Wine-colored velvet hangs over the Palace Theatre’s vast proscenium stage, completing a picture of elegance sketched out by the ornate cream walls and balconies. Opened in 1931 as an RKO movie house, the theater has survived the century with much of its original furnishings intact, including the huge brass chandelier, the original murals by Andrew Karoly and Jules Zartol, and the pack of hyenas that provided the prototype laugh track for vaudeville shows.
