Rehearsals are underway for CPCC Theatre’s production of Ken Ludwig’s The Games Afoot: Or Holmes for the Holidays opening Halloween night Oct 31st in Pease Auditorium.
An hilarious take on Sherlock Holmes, Ken Ludwig’s The Games Afoot: Or Holmes for the Holidays follows the misadventures of the actor William Gillette as he tries to unravel a murder mystery under his own roof on Christmas Eve. All the usual suspects are on hand to keep the audience guessing along with our intrepid slueth who has played Sherlock Holmes so many times on stage that he seems to think he is Sherlock Holmes. Whodunit? The dotty mother? The newlywed ingénues? The married character actors? Or Gillette himself? When a very suspicious Police Inspector shows up out of the snow with a strong English accent things really get turned around!
So grab your favorite Watson and get down to CPCC Theatre for Ken Ludwig’s The Games Afoot: Or Holmes for the Holidays. The master comedic playwright of such crowd pleasers as Lend Me a Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo has done it again!
