CTE Presents The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Radio Theatre

Central Washington University's Central Theatre Ensemble brings back thrilling days of yesteryear with a dynamic live radio program, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Enjoy an evening of music, merriment and mystery, as Sherlock Holmes tangles with Professor Moriarty in a dastardly plot featuring deception, skullduggery, and of course, deduction. Sherlock Holmes features the talents of CWU theatre arts students, including Payden Ackerman, a theatre arts master’s student, as Sherlock Holmes, and Josh Nelson, CWU professor of world languages-Japanese, as Professor Moriarty.

The audience will revel in the creativity and ingenuity of a bygone era featuring Big Bands, Bing Crosby, Humphrey Bogart, and Bambi.

In addition, pre-show and intermission entertainment will include rousing renditions of timeless tunes such as “Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue,” “Makin’ Whoopee!,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
