Nate the Great

When: Mon., April 12, 6-9 p.m. 2010

Since 1977, Nate the Great has bragged that he's found "lost balloons, books, slippers ... even a lost goldfish." The goldfish claim, in particular, sounds curious, and I don't think any of the 25-plus Nate the Great books actually features him finding one. Could it be that Marjorie Weinman Sharmat's "pint-size young detective" has padded his résumé? You may not get to ask him at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., ticketswest.com) tonight, but it's probably worth seeing this Nate the Great performance anyway: The kids can wear pajamas, enjoy hands-on activities and meet "special guests" before the 7 o'clock show, and can eat milk and cookies afterward. Plus, Random House definitely has documented Nate finding money boxes, cookie recipes and a giant turkey before ... so he's not a total fraud. Tickets are $6 to $13 for this literacy-based musical put on by TheatreworksUSA and presented by Imagination Celebration. — Kirk Woundy
