Holmes and Watson By Jason Long
Based on the works by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Directed by Kristin Eveleigh
December 5-14, 2013
Dancer’s Studio West
1881. London England. Wounded army doctor John Watson arrives to try and put the horrors of war behind him and find a new life. What he finds instead is one Sherlock Holmes, a rather boorish and egotistical man who dubs himself “The World’s First Consulting Detective.” The two unlikely new flatmates are thrust into a dangerous case that has the police baffled. An American criminal is found murdered, and Holmes believes this is only the beginning. A master criminal is out for revenge and no one in London is safe. Watson battles his own physical and psychological scars from the war, and his past, to try and help Holmes solve the case and not punch the arrogant genius in the face in the process.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
By William Shakespeare
Adapted & Directed by Christian Goutsis
March 5-9, 2014
Dancer’s Studio West
“For aught that ever I could read,
Could ever hear by tale or history,
The course of true love never did run smooth.”
Hermia loves Lysander, and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to marry Hermia! When the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies. Will the lovers end up with the person they want? Love, marriage, fairies, dreams, tricks, a play within a play…what more could one ask for! A Midsummer Night’s Dream remains one of the most popular Shakespeare plays, and for good reason. Smart and witty language, great, fun characters, a clever plot, and a lot of laughs, make this play a treat for young and old alike. Join us as we follow four lovers into the woods, and watch the madness ensue in what is sure to be a fun and fantastic show!
