As an honorary member of BC’s Sherlock Holmes Society for the last 20 years, I’m pleased to announce that First Impressions Theatre is presenting the Canadian Premiere of Holmes & Watson Save the Empire from February 27th until March 16th in North Vancouver.
Holmes & Watson Save the Empire! is a family friendly, hilarious musical mystery by Jahnna Beecham and Malcolm Hillgartner in its Canadian premiere. This two-actor exciting musical stars Damon Calderwood and Gordon Roberts (the fearless duo from Billy Bishop Goes to War), accompanied by Chris Robson, guitar, vocals, actor and Renée Bulat, violin.
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…?
The show opens on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 and will run Wednesdays to Saturdays at 8:00pm until March 16, 2013. Tickets are available online and are $18 for adults, and $16 for students and seniors (plus applicable taxes or fees). The Deep Cove Shaw Theatre is located at 4360 Gallant Avenue in North Vancouver.
