Porthole, New London. A prospering community, full of rivaling theaters, entrepreneurial tycoons, sophisticated council members, and a low crime rate. Not much washes up on these shores unexpected. Unless you count the detective, of course. Join Sherlock Holmes, a man out of his time, and out of his pay grade, as he sleuths his way through audience created cases. Improvised, innovative, and entertaining, this monthly series will make you put on your deerstalker and brush up on your deductions.
Tickets $12 / $10 for members, students and seniors. All ticket proceeds will go towards renovations at The Players' Ring.
The comedy may be sophomoric, but your purpose for coming is... elementary.
