Christopher is a 15-year-old with an extraordinary brain; he is exceptional at math but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs. Shears’ dog Wellington, he records each fact about the event in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of the murder. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
Tickets for the event are $18 for adults, $12 for seniors and $9 for students, and may be purchased online at bbatickets.com. Call Liz Berard 802-867-0111 for more information.
