NYC’s Aquila Theatre to Bring Drama and In­trigue of Sher­lock Holmes to Fuller Hall

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - St. John­burry, VT

As part of the KCP Presents Per­form­ing Arts Se­ries, Aquila Theatre will per­form Sir Arthur Co­nan Doyle’s Ad­ven­tures of Sher­lock Holmes on Fri­day, March 18 at Fuller Hall in St. Johns­bury. Tick­ets start at $15, and are free for stu­dents 18 and un­der. Show time is 7:30 pm. There is also a fam­i­lyfriendly pre-party start­ing at 5:30 pm at the St. Johns­bury Athenaeum.

In this witty, sus­pense­ful pro­duc­tion and with ac­tors drawn from the top Bri­tish and Amer­i­can stages, ac­claimed Aquila Theatre takes au­di­ences on a thrilling and mem­o­rable ride. Leg­endary de­tec­tive Sher­lock Holmes, played in a smart mod­ern twist by fe­male ac­tor Jackie Schram, skill­fully ma­neu­vers through three of Lon­don's most in­trigu­ing cases us­ing split-se­cond de­duc­tion.

Michael Poandl of DC Metro The­ater Arts says, “Aquila mounts a slick, fast-paced, and highly en­ter­tain­ing ren­di­tion of that old sleuth from Baker Street … Aquila suc­ceeds by mak- ing some­thing old very new again, and it is no mys­tery why the re­sult is a heartrac­ing joy to be­hold.”

The St. Johns­bury Arts and Cul­ture Cam­pus hosts a free pre-party from 5:30 to 6:45 pm at the St. Johns­bury
