Presenting YOUNG SHERLOCK at Ames City Auditorium – June 2021
Directed by Morgan Reetz
Script by Craig Sodaro
Take a trip back in time to when young Sherlock Holmes was a student at Butterworth Academy!
When two girls are kidnapped from the academy, John Watson hopes his friend and classmate Sherlock Holmes will be able to solve his first crime. Meanwhile, a psychic named Madame Lulu appears on the scene to find the students, and the bumbling Constable Bing begins his own investigation.
When the psychic suddenly finds the girls after the parents have paid the large fee demanded in the mysterious ransom note, Sherlock is suspicious. He sets a trap to snare the criminal, launching his career as a great detective who can solve crimes even before the police can.
This program is funded in part by local option tax funds provided by the City of Ames through the Commission on the Arts (COTA) and The Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs.
