Theatre: An Evening with Sherlock Holmes

4 – 13 July @ Limelight Theatre, Wanneroo ·
Presented by Limelight Theatre ·

The game is afoot! Sherlock Holmes is coming to Limelight Theatre. Directed by theatre president Shelley McGinn, An Evening with Sherlock Holmes is a collection of three separate – yet intertwined – stories spanning 40 years.

The first two stories are based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Holmes tales but the third is by playwright Jules Tasca, which puts a different spin on things. It still pays homage to Sherlock Holmes with audiences able to view the famed  detective’s complex personality from every angle, whether it’s the sharp humour, sharper intellect, morbid side or the character’s obsessive tendencies.

An Evening with Sherlock Holmes plays at 8pm July 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 and 13 with a 2pm matinee July 7. Tickets are $21, $18 concession – book  at www.limelighttheatre.com.au or on 0499 954 016.

Limelight Theatre is located on Civic Drive, Wanneroo.
