Tacoma Little Theatre Presents HOLMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS


Tacoma Little Theatre Presents HOLMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Tacoma Little Theatre continues its 101st season, A SEASON OF FIRSTS, with a hilarious "whodunit" comedy for the season, Holmes for the Holidays (or The Game's Afoot), written by Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, The Fox on the Fairway), and directed by Jennifer York.

It is December 1936, and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. It is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

Tacoma Little Theatre's production of Holmes for the Holidays features: Dave Champagne (William Gillette), Lissa Valentine (Martha Gillette), Frank Roberts (Simon Bright), Robin Mae Bacar (Aggie Wheeler), Blake R. York (Felix Geisel), Heidi Walworth-Horn (Madge Geisel), Danielle Locken (Daria Chase) and Anne Marie Rutt (Inspector Goring).
