Our Shows — Sherlock Holmes and the Charleston History Mystery

Charleston History Mystery Show

Hauntingly Historical, Hysterical Whodunit

A parody of Sherlock Holmes where audience volunteers portray some of Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous characters. Includes interesting tidbits on Charleston history.

Recommended for: Adults, teens, pre-teens, those with interest in Sherlock Holmes or Charleston history, those who like clean comedy.
Rated: PG (Contains mild innuendo)

The mystery is this: How can one man kill another man with a rifle loaded with blanks and fired at a 45 degree angle? The answer: It is impossible. But the great Sherlock Holmes well knows that "whenever you have eliminated all which is impossible then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth!" Mr. Charles Town-son is murdered during a civil war shooting demonstration. His own brother is clearly the shooter and is immediately arrested. But Holmes suspects there is more to this story; in fact, several centuries more.

Join Sherlock Holmes for a Lowcountry case of mystery, history, spooks and kooks in the case of Sherlock Holmes and the Charleston History Mystery!

The game is afoot at Charleston's NEW Black Fedora Comedy Mystery Theatre!
