The Mysterious Case Files of Silver Cash, Money Detective

“The Mysterious Case Files of Silver Cash, Money Detective” introduces the audience to Silver Cash, a fifth grade detective who solves kids’ money problems. In the first case, Sammy hires the detective to help her get more money out of her parents for the video game she wants. In the second case, the detective is hired to discover who stole the savings of a fourth grader. In the final case, Silver Cash has to take on the most important client of all as Silver tries to save money to upgrade his agency.

“The Mysterious Case Files of Silver Cash, Money Detective” is a Theatre In Education (TIE) play. Theatre In Education combines theatrical elements with interactive moments in which audience participants work with actor-teachers toward an educational or social goal, using tools of theatre in service of this goal. This production (and any accompanying post-show workshops and study guides) will educate students about jobs and earning money, the importance of budgeting, how to save money, the difference between needs and wants, and comparison shopping.
