ABOUT THE PLAY: 

 

Sherlock Holmes is missing, and the streets of London are awash with crime. Who will save the day? The Baker Street Irregulars - a gang of street kids hired by Sherlock himself to help solve cases. Now they must band together to prove not only that Sherlock is not dead but also to find the mayor’s missing daughter, untangle a murder mystery from their own past, and face the masked criminal mastermind behind it all - a bandit who just may be the brilliant evil Moriarty, the man who killed Sherlock himself! Can a group of orphans, pickpockets, inventors, and artists rescue the people of London? The game is afoot!

 

Directed by Dustin Trabert. At Valley Center Stage, he directed this summer’s The Bremen Town Black Cat Band and appeared in 2017’s A Christmas Carol. He is a freelance director, actor, dramaturg, and designer who’s worked in the Puget Sound region at Centerstage Theatre, Driftwood Players, Taproot Theatre, Fully Reciprocal Theatre Company, the Slate, and West of Lenin.
