The game’s afoot as the famous consulting detective Sherlock Holmes and his friend Doctor Watson are given a case by Queen Victoria herself to solve a mystery that could affect the very future of the British Empire! Holmes recruits a group of London street urchins he calls the “Baker Street Irregulars” and their clever leader Wiggins to help him crack the case. Dodging danger, the cunning Professor Moriarty and his henchwoman Tilly, and trying to keep the bumbling Inspector Lestrade from getting in the way, this original musical takes on the popular stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle leads you on a merry goose chase from 221B Baker Street all the way to the Tower of London! You’ll be as baffled as Holmes’ poor housekeeper Mrs. Hudson trying to make sense of all the twists and turns!
