The half-term event from the Nearly Instant Theatre Session was N.I.T.S Plays Detective when 36 children created a number of comic investigations at Newark Academy’s Lilley and Stone site.
Under the leadership of Flick Spear, the youngest group investigated the eternal mystery of what happens to missing socks in the wash.
The scene involved the children climbing into a large washing machine to try to solve the problem.
Oscar Morrey and his group presented more well-known detectives than you would see on the television in a week.
With the connivance of the wicked Red Queen and her attendants, the assistants of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot were turned against their partners in detecting crime.
Watson and Hastings decided that they wanted some glory of their own.
The older group, led by Rebecca Ladds, presented a scene about two very strange detectives who, it was discovered, were actually stealing from the victims of the crimes they were supposed to be solving.
This intriguing scene began with a tableau of characters who explained their characters in verse.
The company’s next holiday workshop is N.I.T.S. Goes On A World Cruise on April 11 and 12.
