"'The History Mystery' creative team does a good job expressing the importance of history education and the impact it can have on today's children. I did question a couple of plot points. Other than Eleanor Roosevelt, I felt like the choice of female luminaries was thin at best...Artistically, 'The History Mystery' is solid…For a cast where not one person was over the age of 18, their singing and dancing was good."
"A fun but fact-packed look at how every person, even a child, has the ability to affect positive change...Although the show doesn't shy away from our nation's difficult past, it's serious without being scary, and powerful but not preachy...If your kids are in school, it's likely they're already discussing such subjects with peers, and 'History Mystery' is a great way to further that conversation...Families who've been marching in the streets with their children will likely leave invigorated."
"This hourlong musical delivers bushels of laughs, a genuine emotional kick, and a clever dramatization of why history matters to all of us...A show that really does appeal to all ages, whether you're related to a cast member or not…Trevens' book is fast-paced and informative without being condescending or politically correct. Rockwell's traditional musical theater score smartly avoids the pitfalls of faux rap and ersatz rock."
"'The History Mystery,' the latest offering by TADA! Youth Theater's young acting troupe, is definitely one of their best...This timely show teaches kids that history matters, and that every person can make a difference. It does so in TADA!'s usual song-filled entertaining way, making it a great show for all ages. The show is not very long either at just under an hour making it perfect for young children's short attention spans."
