LifeHouse Theater rings in the New Year with a double dose of the world’s most famous detective. The intrigue begins on January 6, 2018 with “Sherlock Holmes.” Based on the classic stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this mystery adventure introduces some of literature’s most memorable characters on stage. This dramatic production weaves together suspense, intrigue and humor as Holmes joins his new friend, Dr. John Watson, to begin their battle against crime together.
Three weeks later, the adventures continue with “The Death of Sherlock Holmes.” The detective becomes entangled within a deadly scheme orchestrated by his archenemy, Professor Moriarty, the “Napoleon of Crime.” Their final confrontation is dramatized in this stunning stage production.
“Sherlock Holmes” performances begin Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 7:30 PM and will continue on weekends through January 21, 2018. Performances are Fridays at 7:30 PM, Saturdays at 2:15 PM (except Opening Night) and 7:30 PM, and Sundays at 2:15 PM. The performance on Friday, January 19, at 7:30 PM will also feature an interpreted presentation for the deaf.
LifeHouse Theater is pleased to announce a special offer to those who purchase tickets to both dramas in the same order. Those who purchase their tickets for both “Sherlock Holmes” and “The Death of Sherlock Holmes” from the box office by phone or in person will receive $4 off each adult ticket purchased. That’s an $8 savings to see both productions. This special pricing is not available online.
Regular advance ticket prices for each production are $19 or $25 for adults and $9 or $12 for children ages 3-11 (no children under 3 are admitted) and can be purchased over the phone with a Visa or MasterCard by calling (909) 335-3037. Tickets are available online at boxoffice.lifehousetheater.com. Checks can also be mailed to LifeHouse, provided reservations are made far enough in advance. Tickets may also be purchased in person at the box office, which is open Fridays from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM and one hour prior to performance times on the weekends. Tickets are $2 more the day of the performance. Group rates are available for groups of ten or more. Guests are encouraged to reserve seats early as performances do sell out.
“Guests are in for a treat as they watch the same actors carry these beloved characters from one drama to the other” comments LifeHouse Theater general manager Jeff DeWitt. “This creates a unique continuity over two different productions and allows audiences to invest in the characters more than a typical single performance.”
“We are thrilled to start 2018 with these two dramatic productions,” added Wayne R. Scott, founder and president of LifeHouse Theater. “This will be a special experience to those guests that choose to see both productions as they follow the complete story arc for the famed detective and his faithful friend. But those who chose to see only one production will still witness a complete story that will entertain and delight.”
Veteran LifeHouse director and performer Nathan Smith has taken on the challenge of directing both dramatic productions. Joining Smith is assistant director Zachary Michel and costum designer Machir Lakofka. Scenic design, sound and lighting are by Mark Perrenoud and Vinnie Martinucchi.
“Sherlock Holmes” and “The Death of Sherlock Holmes” features Michael Slusser as the famous detective with Michael Daehne as Dr. John H. Watson. The two productions also feature Olin Richey, Sr. as Inspector Lestrade, Jennifer Keeney as Mrs. Hudson, Philip Folkens as Stamford and Nick Diliberto as Professor Moriarty. Performing in multiple roles throughout the dual productions are Rich Durant, Olin Richey Jr., Charlie Orozco, Troy Miller, Kyle Ryan, Zac Swan Van Lent, Benji Dooley, Hailey Selter, Sally Angell, Katrina Cavarno, Elizabeth Keeney and Madeline Slusser.
Following these dramatic productions, LifeHouse Theater’s 24th season continues with the world premiere musical “The Snow Queen: A Frozen Fairytale” (February 24 – March 25, 2018), followed by “Joseph!” (April 7 – May 13, 2018), “Anne of Green Gables” (May 26 – July 1, 2018), “Tom Sawyer” (July 14 – August 19, 2018) and “The Disciples of Jesus” (September 1 – 30, 2018).
