More Info

The story follows 10-year-old Steven, a self-proclaimed spy and president of the “Flint Future Detectives Club.” At the heart of this whimsical journey is an intelligent, entrepreneurial boy who is asked to unlock the secret behind a mysterious bill.  With his pals (and their giant flying dog, Zoopy) Steven discovers that family, friends, imagination and determination are the true keys to success; and sharing the spotlight with others can make one even richer.

Original songs by Motown legend Lamont Dozier, and additional music and lyrics by his son Paris are turned out by a live band on stage. Kids and parents will appreciate being treated to a live medley of popular musical genres ranging from Motown, disco, rap, rock, jazz and hip hop.
