One event on August 18, 2019 at 2:00 pm

Come out to The Z on August 9-10 and 16-18 as we kick off our 2019-20 season with a visit to the world’s most famous detective!

The world’s greatest detective has seemingly reached the end of his remarkable career when a case presents itself that is too tempting to ignore: The King of Bohemia is about to be blackmailed by a notorious photograph, and the woman at the heart of this crime is the famous opera singer, Irene Adler. With his trusted companion, Doctor Watson, at his side, Sherlock Holmes pursues first the case, and then the affections of Miss Adler—and in doing so, marches right into the lair of his longtime adversary, that malevolent genius of crime: Professor Moriarty. In this spirited, fast-moving and thoroughly theatrical adaptation, Steven Dietz presents Holmes at the height of his powers—surrounded by all the elements that fans of his exploits have come to expect: danger, intrigue, wit, humor and surprise. “The game is afoot, Watson—and it is a dangerous one!”

Performances are August 9-10 at 7:30 pm, August 16-17 at 7:30 pm, and August 18 at 2 pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for students and are available at www.HistoricZodiacPlayhouse.com/thezticketsnstuff or at the door beginning 30 minutes prior to curtain.

Cast includes Michael Hill as Sherlock Holmes, Wesley Thompson as Dr. John Watson, Steifon J. Passmore as Professor Moriarty, Mark Keeton as SId Prince, Lucy LeMaster as Madge Larrabee, Beth Thead as Irene Adler, Mark Wells as Godfrey Norton, and Will Mitchell as King of Bohemia. Directed by Matt Upton.
