Sherlock Holmes Adventure of the Speckled Band
Friday, March 15 and Saturday March 16
First Presbyterian Church of Cape May, 500 Hughes St., Cape May

"Mr. Holmes, I am under such a strain that I shall go mad if it continues. Do you think that your powers could shed a little light in the darkness which surrounds me?" asks Enid Stonor. And with these words, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson find themselves in a race against time to stop the bizarre murders in an eerie country manor.  

Step back in time, when the East Lynne Theater Company presents Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "Sherlock Holmes' Adventure of the Speckled Band" in the style of a radio broadcast, complete with live sound effects and commercials, just like the Sherlock Holmes' radio series on NBC that premiered in 1930. It was adapted by Craig Wichman with the permission of Dame Jean Conan Doyle. Craig is Founder and Producer of the nationally acclaimed Quicksilver Radio Theater and this script received the National Federation of Community Broadcasters' "Gold Reel" for Radio Drama Award. The cast is Sydia Cedeño, Robert LeMaire, Lee O'Connor, Gayle Stahlhuth, Fred Velde, and Craig Wichman.
