Weekend watch: ‘Humpty Dumpty is Missing’

Tonight-Sunday

Bridging the gap from children’s lit to grown-up fare can be a jump, but Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre’s Children’s Studio Theatre has the ticket. This weekend the youth troupe stages “Humpty Dumpty is Missing,” a loving spoof on the gumshoe genre of the 1940s and ’50s.

The action follows Sammy Scoop (the young descendant of Sam Spade) as he tries to unravel the disappearance of Humpty Dumpty. The usual suspects are a long list of children’s storybook stars, from Peter Rabbit to Rapunzel.

The mystery starts unfolding at 7:30 tonight through Saturday with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday at The Stage at Island Park, 333 4th St., Fargo. Tickets range from $6 for kids 12 and younger to $14 for adults. (701) 235-6778.
