Imagine That! will unlock the secrets of Sherlock Holmes

Family-friendly production, featuring a time-travelling detective, runs Nov. 21-23 at the Venue in Langley

Searching for clues about where to find a bit of fun, family-friendly entertainment this fall?

It’s no mystery, really — Imagine That! productions is presenting “The Secret Case of Sherlock Holmes” from Nov. 21 to 23.

Upstart detectives Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are on their first case.

Their client, a young H.G. Wells, has hired the novice detectives to find a manuscript by Arthur Conan Doyle.

Hiding from their angry landlord, Holmes and Watson duck into Wells’ time machine, push a few buttons and soon find themselves in the 21st century.

They end up at the Freudly Institute where they meet Marilyn Monroe, George Washington and  — wait a minute —  It wouldn’t be much of a mystery if we told you everything now, would it?

With many levels of depth and humour, this clever mystery has a lot of fun with a Sherlock who is reminiscent of the character in the recent popular movies.

The cast features Derek Usher as Sherlock Holmes and Jared Erickson  as Dr. Watson, with Wendy Klassen, Gloria Nickel, Liam Sullivan, Janet Erickson, Ted Staunton, Bria Magra, Aisley Komatsu, Paul Kobilke, Emily Wheeler, Rachel Kobilke, Serena Jackson, Kelsey Lock and Hannah Cenaiko.

Produced and directed by Faith Toronchuk.
