See why Scooby Doo and his friends in the Mystery Inc. Gang have been capturing audiences for more than 40 years at Scooby Doo Live! Musical Mysteries. Director Theresa Borg has crafted a spooky, ghost-filled mystery for the gang to tackle that features all new songs. All the earmarks are there, right down to the line ''And I would've gotten away with it if it wasn't for you meddling kids,'' but this time delivered with all the excitement of live theater. The music is written in the classic 1960s retro style fans will remember from the early days of the show (the gang was originally supposed to be a band with a dog drummer), with the fresh style of the new Mystery Incorporated brand. ''When the new series of Scooby-Doo, Mystery Incorporated, came on TV, my kids were absolutely obsessed, and I was delighted because it was something from my childhood that I could share with them,'' said Borg.
