Sherlock Holmes

A Radio Drama

After last year's dynamic live radio program debut of "The Adventures of Sam Spade", this year we will feature two exciting radio dramas. Under consideration are well-known radio programs such as The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Buck Rodgers in the 25th Century, The Adventures of Phillip Marlowe, and The Shadow. In addition, there will be singing, dancing, stunning sound effects, and perhaps some comedy routines much like last year's 'Who's On First.' Come join us as we turn back to the clock to an era featuring Big Bands, Bing Crosby, Humphrey Bogart, and Bambi!

April 4, 5, 6 at 7:30 PM

Press Release

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.”

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes will be performed April 4, 5, 6 at 7:30 p.m., and April 7 at 2 p.m. in the Milo Smith Tower Theatre. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors and students, and $7 for CWU students with ID.

Tickets may be purchased online at, by phone at 509-963-1429, or in person at the Welcome Center on University Way or at the Wildcat Shop Customer Service desk in the SURC.

All parking is free in CWU lots after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends, except in specially marked spaces (loading zones) and lots designated for residence halls.
