A highly entertaining adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famed detective story, combining mystery, romance, action, danger and laughter takes the stage in Hartland this fall, as the Hartland High School Drama Troupe presents “Sherlock Holmes.” Adapted from the classic stage comedy by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and William Gillette by Tim Kelly.
Performances take place Nov. 10-12 at Hartland High School, 10635 Dunham Road. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with a matinee at 2:30 pm on Sunday.
Alice Faulkner has letters written by a dead girl that will cause grave international problems. Moriarty wants those letters; so does Holmes. The game’s afoot! But not before the Professor’s gang has London in its grip. Only young Holmes understands the true objective the Professor has in mind (too sinister to reveal here), and he’s willing to put his own life on the line to stop it.
