Tri-state regional educators are invited to bring their students to the FSU campus for a fun, educational presentation of Nate the Great!

Junior detective Nate the Great has a new case! His friend Annie has just painted a picture, and she can’t find it anywhere. Armed with an appetite for justice and for pancakes, Nate vows to solve this baffling elementary school mystery.

Based on the popular book series, Nate the Great is a funny, sweet, rollicking good time that celebrates, art, friendship, creative thinking and —of course —pancakes!
