Family fun with Scooby-Doo Live: Musical Mysteries


The December holidays are finally here, schools out and it’s time to unwind. For those of you with little ones to entertain, it takes some extra thought on how to entertain them during the holidays.

Luckily for you, everyone’s favourite mystery solving gang are here in South Africa for a very first time, Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries.

I had the pleasure of meeting the gang, Fred, Daphne, Shaggy, Velma and Scooby. I must say Scooby is much taller than I expected!

I chatted to the brains of the mystery solving gang, Velma and the fun, lover of Scooby-snacks,  Shaggy.

The live musical breaks barriers with the audience and the children get to interact with their favourite characters. “The reaction you get from the kids, is just the best. They’re hunting for the  ghosts, they’re helping with the ghost. It’s really interactive”, explains Velma

When I asked about  mysteries Velma quickly answers that she solves all the mysteries and that Shaggy is well… Shaggy,  he’s super chilled and loves food.  Sounds about right!

“It’s never my idea to find ghosts but I go anyway”.

Velma explained what The Mystery Inc gang have planned for their upcoming show at Carnival City.

“We’re looking for the Carnival City Big Top Arena ghost”. While Shaggy explains, “I get kids to yell out ‘Where’s the ghost’. We definitely get up and dance, get them (the kids) to sing along”.

With singing, dancing and solving mysteries Scooby-Doo and the rest of the Mystery Inc gang are ready to entertain the family.
