Fountain Hills Theater.
Not only is this a wonderful and intimate place to enjoy community theater but this past weekend they opened Charles Marowitz’s Broadway play, Sherlock's Last Case.
As you might expect, the play included a mystery. Specifically, Holmes receives a death threat and he and his sidekick Doctor Watson have to figure out the skinny of it all. There's a little bit of romance, lots of twists, and a final turn.
The theater is small and there isn't a bad seat in the house and I love that about this place. You almost feel part of the play. In addition to the wonderful acting (special kudos to Donna Georgette who played a hilarious Mrs. Hudson!), I was truly impressed by the stage, sound and costumes. It really felt like 1897 Victorian England at Sherlock Holmes' Baker Street flat and I had an immediate urge to prepare tea and scones.
I don't want to give up too much about the play. You'll have to see it for yourself and I encourage anyone who lives in Phoenix or the surrounding areas to do so. The play only runs until November 10.
I've already taken a peek at upcoming plays scheduled at this theater. Needless to say, I'll be back. Click here for tickets and schedule information.
