Directed by Sunshine Coast award winning actress Jennifer Rousset (having performed with Coolum, more recently in “Four Weddings and An Elvis” as the Marriage Celebrant) and under the musical direction of John Rush (JR), you’ll be assured this entertainment is the perfect show for anyone who is, has, or knows a mum!

Are you the world’s greatest detective?

By | Auditions

Auditions for our August show, “Sherlock Holmes & the Case of the Stolen Suspender”, are just three weeks away and we’re looking for the world’s greatest detective, Dr Watson (his sidekick) and whole cast of characters to make this incredibly funny play come to life.

Set in Victorian England in 1895 our victim, Amelia Prude, seeks out London’s best known detective who might just have found a case worthy of his intellect.

Upon retiring to bed one night, Amelia disturbed a thief who managed to grab her prized possession, a jewel encrusted suspender, before making a hasty exit.

This, along with other recent jewel thefts, bears all the hallmarks of the evil villain Moriarty – but he was seen falling to his death at the Reichenbach Falls.  Did he survive the unsurvive’able?  Or has someone new taken over the role of the dastardly mastermind?

Join Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson as they travel across the country to discover just who has stolen the valuable garment!  Gasp as they battle snakes, Tasmanian devils and wicked nuns!  Marvel as the greatest detective ever seeks to vanquish his latest foe!
