“Together at the Table” affords families the opportunity to enjoy a communal dinner in the Playhouse's rehearsal barn and a casual conversation with an artist from the show before attending a performance together – all for $10 per ticket.  Discounted ticket includes dinner and show; must attend as a family group with student-age children.  Limited availability.  For reservations, call the Playhouse box office at 203-227-4177.

“A Sherlock Carol” is based on two classic tales, “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle,” a Sherlock Holmes story, and “A Christmas Carol.” The inventive plot of intrigue and suspense, infused with holiday cheer and music, features familiar characters from the literature of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Charles Dickens. Nominated for a 2022 Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Play and selected as a “Critics' Pick” by The New York Times, the play is written and directed by Mark Shanahan, who is also Westport Country Playhouse incoming artistic director.

The fully staged production is set in 1894 London on Christmas Eve as a grown-up Tiny Tim asks Sherlock Holmes to investigate the peculiar death of Ebenezer Scrooge.
