SPRING, TX – Move over, Arthur Conan Doyle!
Old West Melodrama is preparing to unveil a new mystery dinner show that spoofs Sherlock Holmes mysteries — and explores Victorian customs, exotic diseases and cures.
“Holmes Sweet Homicide” debuts on Friday, May 13 and performances continue Friday and Saturday evenings through Saturday, May 28.
Attendees will join world-famous detective Hemlock Holmes, who has just returned from a visit to a long-lost cousin in a sanatorium in upstate New York.
Unbeknownst to Holmes’ female sidekick Whatsun, the detective has brought his cousin Elmira back home with him.
Whatsun is shocked and jealous of the beautiful woman with a rare mental disorder called Disrobe-a-phobia. Mystery and intrigue abound when Dr. Charles Ovary and his nurse arrive to cure Elmira – and the doctor soon becomes just as infatuated with Elmira as Holmes is.
“Keep your eyes and ears open, because someone will be ruthlessly murdered at the end of the play,” producer Jeannine Cole said. “It’s up to our audience to guess who-done-it.”
The show will be held at Puffabelly’s Depot Restaurant in Old Town Spring, with dinner and a pre-show starting at 7 p.m. The melodrama begins at 8 p.m.
Old West Melodrama, stationed at 100 Main Street in Old Town Spring, is the only
performing group in the greater Houston area that offers melodramas and murder mystery
dinner shows year round.
The troupe, founded by Joe Cole, is comprised of experienced actors and performers who enjoy interacting with the audience. To purchase tickets or for more information, call 713-364-9190, email [email protected] or visit www.oldwestmelodrama.com.
