HOLMES AND CARTER MYSTERIES
March 17 & 18 and Nov. 3 & 4 at 8pm
Before television and the Internet, people sat eagerly by the radio to hear the latest dramas and comedies. Many radio shows were performed in front of an audience as they were being sent live, across the "airways." ELTC invites you to be part of our radio audience as we take you back to those days of live sound effects, commercials, and actors portraying several roles to make the tales come to life. This year, we're offering two NEW mysteries back-to-back on the same night, with the same cast of seven going from Holmes’ Victorian England, to Carter’s Manhattan during World War II. In The Adventure of the Red-Headed League, Sherlock Holmes must learn why Ezekiah Hopkins, of Lebanon, PA, left money in his will to start a club for only men with red hair. In The Voice of Crime, the illusive "Vox" announces he will pay Nick Carter if Nick discovers where his next robbery will occur. The Red-Headed League is adapted from the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle story by Gayle Stahlhuth. Aired on April 18, 1943, The Voice of Crime is the original script for the 2nd Carter radio show, written by Walter Gibson and Edward Gruskin, who wrote numerous detective scripts for the radio.
Location: First Presbyterian Church, 500 Hughes St., Cape May Tickets (except as noted): $27 general; $17 full-time students and military (active or retired); ages 12 and under free!
