Interesting portrayal of Holmes & Watson - not quite what one might expect but well done.

Very enjoyable. It's played a broadly, and eight to eleven year old kids will certainly enjoy it. Try to get there early enough to get front row seats for the kids.

This production is interspersed with musical numbers - various Christmas songs -...continued

Pleasant enough cast and I love seeing things in this theater but maybe because it was the last performance, there wasn't enough "oomph" to make the premise work. Oh well, maybe next year!

The show was 45 minutes long, 5+ minutes during which the cast sang holiday songs! Hardly worth the trip.

This was so much fun. We laughed all the way through the production.

Great setting, good acting. A "do it again" experience.

This was a really enjoyable play. The set and costumes were great, the performances were excellent, and the writing was terrific. I really enjoyed the little touches of humor throughout, Sherlock was never so much fun. Several singing & dancing...continued

It was a great show. I am going to recommend this show to my friends! The musical numbers were unexpected but added to the show. The sound effects were adorable!

The shows at The Raven are always a treat. For the holidays, I took my 82 year old dad, and 9 year old son...both enjoy the show immensely, no one fell asleep, and no one whined...in fact they were both riveted; enjoyed the low tech sound effects,...continued

An enjoyable, original, well-produced, zealously acted and sung holiday theatre experience. I might make this an annual outing! Lots of smiles. I really recommend it!

Too short for such an amusing play. I loved the sounds that went along with the play. It was well done. Overhaul I really liked it and enjoyed myself.

A delightful hour of theatre! Recommended for ages 10 and up but I took my 7-year-old who was engaged throughout. Did see some much younger patrons who seemed confused by the proceedings on stage. It is a Sherlock Holmes story, after all, and we...continued

Comedic actors were great. Fun show overall, and I can see why the theater has it as an annual tradition.

We love the theatre and the play. Unfortunately we didn't think the talent/production was as good as last year. We loved the performance last year! Sorry!
