Artists’ Ensemble Theater presents the world premiere of Whistling in the Dark, a Sherlock Holmes Adventure. Holmes and Watson must solve a locked room murder before the killer strikes again…
Two years ago, Julia awoke to hear someone whistling in the night. However, the corridor was empty. This happened repeatedly until Julia’s death, under mysterious circumstances, inside a locked room. Last night, her younger sister, Helen, awoke to the sound of whistling in the dark…
Helen lays her case before the gentlemen residing at 221B Baker Street. Now they are on their way to crumbling manor house in the country where they will lay a trap for a murderer, with their client as bait.
Holmes and Watson are played by John Adam Keating and David A. Gingerich. The other 17 characters in the play are portrayed by Janelle Good, Erin Philpott, and Dan Klarer, changing costumes, accents, and occasionally gender, in rapid and hilarious sequence.
Whistling in the Dark performs May 12-28 in the Cheek Theatre at Rockford University and is suitable for ages ten and older. For tickets, call 815-394-5004 or visit www.artistsensemble.org.
