The Madness of Sherlock Holmes poster

A curious and very authentic Holmes tale, with the Great Detective locked in a cell and wearing a straitjacket. Is there really a plot to assassinate the Queen, or is this a fabrication of Holmes' deranged mind, as his friend Watson suspects?

The Second Season offers students experience beyond the classroom to hone their skills.  The focus is on the actor's development and the rehearsal process in a low tech environment.
