When an elderly man (a heartbroken widower) is almost struck down by a car, the young driver responsible for the near-accident is sentenced to community service: helping the old man with his household chores for six months. This heartwarming comedy about two very different men who don't even want to be in the same room together is also the moving story of two lonely spirits who gradually come to know and care about each other. Written by Jeff Baron (Mother's Day, Mr. & Mrs. God), Visiting Mr. Green is a poignant comedy that'll give you both tears and laughter while watching and also leaves a lasting impression. Learn More

Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure
by Steven Dietz
Based on the original 1899 play by William Gillette and Arthur Conan Doyle
Directed by Michael Laun
Directed by Michael Laun, who recently directed the hilarious box office hit The Musical of Musicals (the Musical!), this production promises intrigue, adventure and even romance, not to mention one of the most iconic literary figures of all time. The play pulls fascinating characters and plot twists from two original stories: A Scandal in Bohemia and The Final Problem, and underscores the great friendship between the brilliant, if enigmatic Holmes (William Elsman) and his loyal, if doddering physician friend Dr. Watson (Michael RJ Campbell). Also starring Troy Thomas as Sherlock’s nemesis Professor Moriarty and STC’s own Michele Hillen as siren Irene Adler. “The game’s afoot!” and there is a new twist at every turn.
