A murder is to take place on Christmas Eve, and only the audience and a famous sleuth can stop it. Whodunnit Murder Mystery Theatre will present Sherlock Holmes and Twas the Murder Before Christmas beginning on Saturday.
Sherlock Holmes and Twas the Murder Before Christmas performances will take place on Saturdays from Nov. 19 until Dec. 17 as well as Fridays on Dec. 2, 9, and 16. All evening shows begin at 7 p.m. A Sunday brunch show will also take place on Dec. 4 beginning at 1 p.m. All performances will take place at the Hyatt Regency downtown, located at 320 W. Jefferson Street in Louisville.
Tickets for each show are $43.95 per person. Tickets include the show, tax, gratuity, and a meal choice of roast turkey with stuffing, glazed pork loin, or tortellini primavera. Reservations are strongly recommended as the show does sell out. All reservations can be made by calling 502-426-7100.
Sherlock Holmes and Twas the Murder Before Christmas features the famous sleuth and his sidekick, Watson, as they attempt to find a suspect who always kills his victims on Christmas Eve.
The audience will have the opportunity to help out in solving the case. During the show, suspects will move about the audience. The audience, in turn, will be able to ask the suspects questions in order to gain clues. Suspects have the option of either answering truthfully or evading the question.
Keep in mind if an audience member asks if the suspect is the killer, the suspects will answer no.
Sherlock Holmes and Twas the Murder Before Christmas is double cast, with Craig Nolan Highley and A.J. Green performing the title character on separate nights. A.S. Waterman directed and created the show.
More information on the show and possible booking for private events can be found at the Whodunnit Murder Mystery Theater website or by calling 502-426-7100.
