The leaves are falling, and the autumn wind is blowing. This is the time of year for theater, theater and more theater. Whether you’re an actor on stage, or a partaker of what’s coming off the stage, the fall is a good time to get involved in it all. Below, I’ve listed a few of the auditions and shows local actors can look forward to. Enjoy!:

About the Play
Christmas eve, 1892. A woman who has just bought her Christmas goose is
accosted in the street and her goose is stolen by an unknown assailant.
Thus begins the events that will involve master detective Sherlock Holmes
and Dr. Watson in a mystery that involves animal mutilations, a stolen
“cursed” diamond, the freeing of an innocent man, and the search for a man
that embodies the spirit of Christmas.
