The Elgin Opera House presents
Sherlock Holmes: A Scandal in Bohemia
by Arthur Conan Doyle adapted by Grant Turner.
The play opens October 30th and plays Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 2:30 pm and 4:30 pm through November 8th.
Socially Distanced General Admission: $19
(Limited seating, please order in advance)
The first of 56 short stories Arthur Conan Doyle would write about Sherlock (and the third story overall, after two introductory novels), A Scandal in Bohemia, is a great jumping-on point for those new to the characters, while also being a must-see event for the die-hard fan, as it introduces one of Sherlock’s greatest foils, the mysterious Irene Adler.
The play will feature a faithful adaptation of Doyle’s words, supplemented with video, images, music, and sound to transport the viewer back to the days of Victorian London.
The play features Michael Cooper as Dr. Watson, Grant Turner as Sherlock Holmes, Cassandra Johnson as Irene Adler, Liberty O’Dell as the King of Bohemia, and Sam Miller as multiple characters. The staging and audiovisual components were conceived by the acting company.
Tickets can be reserved in advance by calling the box office at 541-663-6324 or online.

Opera House announces musical “Matilda” postponed
The Friends of the Opera House announced today that its April-May production of the hit Broadway musical “Matilda” has been postponed due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
New Matilda show dates: TBA
The organization postponed the production to comply with current state regulations banning large events and “do our part to help keep audience members, our performers, our staff, and the wider community safe right now”, said Terry Hale, Executive Artistic Director of the Elgin Opera House.
Opera House patrons who have already purchased “Matilda” tickets for performance dates in April or May can expect a phone call from Opera House Box Office staff to facilitate transferring those tickets once the new show dates are ready on our ticketing software, said Hale.
Friends of the Opera House Board President, Moira Madden, commented, “We hope that people will begin purchasing ‘Matilda’ tickets as soon as we have the new dates posted as a show of support for the Opera House during what will be a tough time financially for our organization. As is the case for many other small arts organizations (and small businesses) across the country, temporary closures can cause real hardship. We encourage everyone to buy a ticket for a friend to see this fun and amazing show, too! Your support will be greatly appreciated.”
If you already purchased “Matilda” tickets for April and/or May and you would like to convert your tickets into a tax-deductible contribution that will help support the Elgin Opera House during this challenging time, please call the Box Office at 541-663-6324.
You may purchase 2020-2021 season tickets at any time by calling the same number. For more information, to make a donation, or to purchase tickets on the web, go to ElginOperaHouse.com.
