Reserve early to see Holmes and Watson Save the Empire!
This is a family-friendly, hilarious musical mystery by Jahnna Beecham and Malcolm Hillgartner in its Canadian premiere.
The fabulous cast includes Damon Calderwood and Gordon Roberts (the fearless duo from Billy Bishop Goes to War), along with Chris Robson, Renee Bulat and Kelly Avery. Once again the fate of the British Empire lies in the hands of the greatest crime fighting team in literature. Holmes and his faithful friend Watson have until midnight to solve the fiendish Moriarty's deadly puzzle. Where is the QV2? What is Victoria's secret? How on earth did Holmes end up on the stage of the Gaiety Music Hall? Who is the mysterious Nightingale of Nuremburg? And why is Watson wearing her dress…?
