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.
