All performances are at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 each and may be reserved by telephoning the Box Office at 765-653-5880 beginning Monday, September 7. Box office hours are 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The production is being sponsored by Shuee’s Furniture & Mattresses.

As the play begins, we see actor William Gillette (Jack Randall Earles) and his cast on stage in a performance of his play “Sherlock Holmes.” A mysterious event at their curtain call sets up the rest of “The Game’s Afoot” to take place in Gillette’s home during a holiday celebration. He takes his role as Holmes to heart and tries to solve a real-life murder himself.

Among his fellow actors are a married team Madge (Caroline Good) and Felix (Tim Good) and a younger duo Simon (TJ Tincher) and Aggie (Anna Harris). Added to the mix are Gillette’s feisty mother Martha (Vickie Parker), a nosy gossip columnist Daria (Karen Temple), and the local police inspector Harriet Goring (Madison King) who takes it upon herself to join Gillette’s investigation.

Director for “The Game’s Afoot” is Dustin Bond. Assistant director is Jim Green. The set is by Linda Gjesvold. Bond also designed the lights and sound for the production.

Jessica Masner is production stage manager. Brandon & Cameron Wunderlich are on the stage crew. Running the light board is Melissa Green. Hillary Johnson is running the sound board. Costumes are by Shelly McFadden.
