The Hardy Boys Kicks Off The Growing Stage

(NETCONG, NJ) -- The Growing Stage: The Children’s Theatre of New Jersey, located in the Historic Palace Theatre on Route 183 in Netcong, New Jersey is thrilled to present the first show of their 42nd Season, The Hardy Boys In The Mystery Of The Haunted House.  Based on The Hardy Boys novel “The House on the Cliff” by Franklin W. Dixon and adaptation by Jon Klein, this production runs October 13-29, 2023 with performances on Saturdays at 4:00pm, Sundays at 2:00pm and a special opening night performance on Friday, October 13th at 7:30pm.  This production is directed by Stephen L. Fredericks, Founder and Executive Director of The Growing Stage.

Ace amateur detectives Frank and Joe Hardy find themselves embroiled in a dangerous and perplexing caper that turns the tranquil town of Bayport upside down! This time, suspicious circumstances surround an eerie mansion on the edge of Barmet Bay, the setting for an international smuggling operation. Performed in the style of a classic 1920’s film noir setting, our production offers as many laughs as it does shivers!

The Hardy Boys In The Mystery Of The Haunted House features a company of 8 artists: Davis Cameron Lemley (The Lightning Thief, Goosebumps) of Cedar Grove, NJ as Frank Hardy; Niall Ng (Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus) of Maplewood, NJ as Joe Hardy; Ellie Kallay (Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus) of Bloomfield, NJ as Callie; Jim Lynch (ELF The Musical) of Blakeslee, PA as Fenton Hardy; Lisa Burgos (TGS Debut) of Newark, NJ as Mrs. Shaw/Margaret; Steven Nitka (Babes in Toyland) of Long Valley, NJ as Snackley; Danny Campos (Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus) of Kearny, NJ as  Molloy and David O’Neill (Go, Dog. Go!) of Budd Lake, NJ as Jones/Chief Collig.
