Tickets are on sale for the Orcutt Academy Drama Class production now in the business office! The OA drama class is hosting an evening of murder and mystery premiering Eric Drazin’s “Sherlock Holmes and the Siege of 221b” adapted by our own Mr. Shaw.

I recently had a chance to sit down and talk with Colin Bailey, the star of this upcoming production, playing Sherlock Holmes. Bailey is enthusiastic about being a part of this show and is expecting a “full-house” during each of the showings.

In Shaw’s adaption, Holmes is moved from his familiar Victorian setting and is launched forward a few years into the Edwardian era where new style and customs can differentiate how Holmes goes about this mystery.

Sherlock Holmes and his trusty side-kick, Dr. Watson, are on the hunt to reveal the identity of the infamous Firefly, whom has been blamed for various thefts and crimes throughout London. In the beginning of the play, Holmes and Watson are at their flat in 221b Baker Street and are visited by a group of strangers. He then receives a note from The Firefly making claim on Holmes’ life. 221b Baker Street is under Siege! The Firefly states someone in his flat is going to make an attempt on his life. Holmes must act fast as The Firefly is set on destroying Holmes and he needs to uncover the identity of his assassin before the assassin strikes and it is too late.

The Drama class will be putting on this production on November 9th, 10th, and 11th at 7:00 pm and will be putting on a matinee at 2:00 pm on the 11th as well.Tickets will be selling for $10 regular admission and $20 for VIP seating in the OA Business Office. Those who buy VIP tickets will receive an interactive experience with the cast. This will be a weekend of murder and mystery and you don’t want to miss it. Buy your tickets today.
