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 castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. It is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.
Game's Afoot, The Cancelled
Dear Tlt Patrons,
Due to the rising number of cases of Covid-19 and a recent exposure to our cast we, unfortunately, have decided to cancel our upcoming performances of The Game’s Afoot for November 19, 20, & 21, 2020. It is true that we are concerned with attendance numbers but most importantly we are concerned about the health of our cast, crew, and patrons.
At this time we do not have a postponement planned, but with some hope and luck we may be able to bring this show back at another date or in another season. Our current plan is to push forward for our next production of Evita in February. We will be constantly monitoring the situation in our community in order to make informed decisions about each of the remaining shows this season.
We want to say thank you to our cast and crew for their hard work and preparation for the show. We are sad that we cannot present it to you but we know this is the best decision for our community. We love Jefferson City and we want to make sure we are doing what we can to stop the spread of this illness. Thank you to everyone for your continued support of The Little Theatre and the arts in Jefferson City.
