The Game’s Afoot

at Cen­treStage

The dan­ger and hi­lar­ity are non­stop in this glit­ter­ing, far­ci­cal mystery. Ken Lud­wig’s ‘The Game’s Afoot’ or ‘Holmes for the Hol­i­days’ will be on stage at Cen­treStage The­atre in time for the hol­i­days.

It is De­cem­ber 1936, and Broad­way star Wil­liam Gil­lette, ad­mired the world over for his lead­ing role in the play Sher­lock Holmes, has in­vited his fel­low cast mem­bers to his Con­necti­cut man­sion for a week­end of rev­elry. When one of the guests turns up dead, the fes­tiv­i­ties in this iso­lated house of hid­den rooms and state-of-the art gad­gets quickly turn danger­ous.

Re­main­ing dates are Dec. 7 and 8.

Front of House opens at 6:45 p.m. for the evening per­for­mances and 1:15 p.m. for the mati­nees.

Tick­ets are: adults $15; se­niors/ stu­dents $12; chil­dren, age 12 and un­der, $5. Cen­treStage takes cash or cheques only. Reser­va­tions are rec­om­mended and are held un­til 15 min­utes be­fore show time.

Call 902-678-8040 for reser­va­tions.

‘The Man Who In­vented Christ­mas’ at King’s Dec. 14 King’s The­atre in An­napo­lis Royal screens ‘ The Man Who In­vented Christ­mas’ Dec. 14 at 7 p.m.

In 1843 Lon­don, au­thor Charles Dick­ens finds him­self in fi­nan­cial trou­ble af­ter writ­ing three un­suc­cess­ful nov­els in a row. Des­per­ate for a hit, Dick­ens re­lies on real-life in­spi­ra­tion and his vivid imag­i­na­tion to bring Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and other clas­sic char­ac­ters to life in “A Christ­mas Carol,” for­ever chang­ing the hol­i­day sea­son into the cel­e­bra­tion known to­day.

The Man Who In­vented Christ­mas tells of the mag­i­cal jour­ney that led to the cre­ation of Ebenezer Scrooge (Christo­pher Plum­mer), Tiny Tim and other clas­sic char­ac­ters from A Christ­mas Carol. Di­rected by Bharat Nal­luri (MISS PET­TI­GREW LIVES FOR A DAY), the film shows how Charles Dick­ens (Dan Stevens) mixed real life in­spi­ra­tions with his vivid imag­i­na­tion to con­jure up un­for­get­table char­ac­ters and a time­less tale, for­ever chang­ing the hol­i­day sea­son into the cel­e­bra­tion we know to­day.

Star­ring Dan Stevens and Christo­pher Plum­mer.

Tick­ets are: $11 Adult, $10 with Film Buff Card, $8 Youth.

Doors open 45 min­utes be­fore show time.
