The Community Theatre Association of Michigan is an organization designed to help community theatre groups grow and flourish. The organizational purpose is to foster a closer relationship among members, encourage high standards of theatrical productions, stimulate interest in theatre in Michigan, provide a means for the exchange of information about theatrical production, acting, playwriting, and the theatre arts.
The Show: Adapted by Steven Dietz and based on the original 1899 play by William Gillette and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, "Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure" is a delightful adaption in the ever popular series outlining the investigations of Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous character.
The Story: Sherlock Holmes has seemingly reached the end of his remarkable career when a case comes along too tempting to turn down. Will his only love, Irene Adler, play a role in bringing the brilliant detective out of retirement? "Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure" is full of danger, intrigue, wit, humor and surprise! Winner of the 2007 Edgar Award for Best Mystery Play.
