Opening Night: The Game’s Afoot Tonight! November 1 Call the Box Office for Tickets 352-746-7606

The Game’s Afoot Show Poster

A comedic mystery with shades of Sherlock Holmes opens Friday, Nov. 1, for a three-weekend run at the Art Center Theatre in Citrus Hills.

“The Game’s Afoot” is set in the 1930s and takes place in the Connecticut home of William Gillette, an actor and writer who played Sherlock Holmes on stage for over 25 years.

Gillette has invited friends and a famous theater critic to his home for a Christmas celebration only two weeks after there was an attempt on his life in the theater.

He hopes to use this holiday party to uncover the would-be killer, but as the evening continues, it becomes increasingly clear there is a killer on the loose, and increasingly unclear who it is.

Add in witty comic lines and a cast of interesting characters, and the play serves up a delightful dish of comedy and mystery before it all comes together in an unexpected conclusion.

Directed by Mac and Sharon Harris, the play features Rich Mesker as William Gillette, Marvia Korol as his mother Martha Gillette, Jacki Scott as Madge Geisel, Paul Bolognese as Felix Geisel, Kay Gear as Aggie Wheeler, Kyle Flanagan as Simon Bright, Sarah Schuyler as Daria Chase and Kristi Fuller as Inspector Goring.

Eayn Flanagan is the stage manager and Gloria Jardinella is assistant stage manager. The set was designed by Sharon Harris and built by a set crew under the direction of set construction coordinator Gary Boesch. The set construction crew was John Cocco, Doug Haynes, Ashley Gibson, Eayn Flanagan, Harry Lewis and John Koch.

Edwin Martin painted the set and Nancy Hoffman was the costumer. Technical design of the play is by Eayn Flanagan. Sharon Harris and Dianna Haynes did the artistic design and specialty painting.

Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. Sunday. There is an additional performance at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9. Tickets are $21 and are available at the box office on the Art Center campus at 2644 N. Annapolis Ave. or by calling 352-746-7606.

The Game’s Afoot Opening Friday Nov. 1, 7:30 PM Call 352-746-7606 for Tickets

It is December 1936, and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. It is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

wpid-wp-1413826034460.jpgFall 2014 Art Classes

Learn to Draw What You See

Mondays 9:30 to 11:00 Beginning Sept 29, ending Dec 15

Beginning to Intermediate

This 12 week course will take you through the process of how to block out the human figure so that proportions, scale and perspective are maintained. The course will begin with the discussions on drawing contours and shape without diving too deeply into the muscular definitions that develop the forms. Though this is not an advanced figure drawing class, an elementary understanding of contour drawing, drawing relationships and perspective are essential prerequisites for this class.

The drawing materials you will need for the drawing class are: Bring 2b, 4b, 6b and 2h pencils; Bienfang or strathmore medium tooth drawing paper 11×14 pad; kneaded eraser/magic rub eraser and a oversized clip board to attach paper to. We will also be adding charcoal black, white and sienna to this list for this session.
