“The Art Detective” – a mystery
Everyone loves a good mystery, especially in the world of art. You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure out whodunit when The Art Detective, the 2014 Pageant of the Masters, is on the case.
The Festival of Art’s world famous theatrical celebration of art in tableaux vivants – “living pictures” – will reveal how lost treasures were discovered, where crimes of passion were uncovered (or covered up) and how creative riddles were unraveled, with a gallery of the world’s great masterpieces providing the clues! The stories and revelations are sure to provide fun for the whole family and be anything but elementary.
Volunteers of all ages needed. No theater experience necessary.
In addition to needing volunteers to pose in the Pageant, volunteers are needed for positions in the wardrobe, make up, and headdress departments, as well as cast area coordinators and refreshment servers, among other positions.
