Jacksonville High School’s drama department presents Sherlock Holmes
On Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, Jacksonville High School’s Drama Department will present Tim Kelly’s interpretation of the classic mystery-solving hero, Sherlock Holmes. Join the cast and crew as they bring the stage to life in this riveting and suspenseful tale of an England shrouded in evil and deception.

Will Sherlock Holmes (Eddie Harper) and Dr. Watson (Daniel O’ Donnell) be able to stop the infamous Professor Moriarty (Spencer Stephens)? Or will the British police (Noah Davis) find another victim floating in the Thames?

“We have all been working hard to make this the best show we can and don’t think we will disappoint,” said senior director Eddie Harper.

Also in the cast of unique characters are Madge Larrabee (Kelsey Matthews) and James Larrabee (Dylan Hurst) pursuing Ms. Alice Faulkner (Ariel Hosmer) for her mysterious letters.

What does Professor Moriarty want with these letters? Will the world be thrown into war? Can Sherlock and Watson solve the case? “Each play has exciting and unique challenges, but it’s worth it in the end when you see how much the audience enjoys it. This show should definitely be a good one,” said head director Kelsey Matthews.

Jessie Hill, senior director of costuming and a Jacksonville High School senior who is bound for All-State Choir, will be singing the famous Scottish song “Loch Lomond” acapella as her character in the play. What a treat!

Come to the Jacksonville High School Cafetorium Friday, Nov. 30 or Saturday Dec. 1 at 7:00 p.m. to see the mystery unfold. All seats will be available for $7 at the door. Children are welcome as the play is appropriate for all ages. There will be snacks and drinks available to buy during intermission.
