IMPORTANT UPDATE: We hope you and all of your loved ones are safe and healthy. We are happy to say that our August 2020 performances of SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE ADVENTURE OF THE COPPER BEECHES at Bartow-Pell Mansion-Museum WILL take place this year!
Thank you for your patience with us as we all try to adapt to a challenging situation. For the safety of our audience, cast, and crew, we are making some changes to these shows:
1. All performances will be held entirely outdoors, on the large veranda behind the mansion.
2. Attendance will be limited to 20 audience members, and social distancing will be required for all attendees who are not members of the same household.
3. Masks will also be required.
4. To accommodate the shift to outdoor performances, all 7pm performances will now begin at 6pm. If you are a current ticket holder, and unable to accommodate this change, your ticket will be honored at the August performance of your choice. If you are unable to reschedule, you will receive a refund. Please contact Bartow-Pell Mansion-Museum for assistance.
Our cast and crew will also be observing social distancing and sanitizing protocols throughout all rehearsals and performances.
Locally, the Covid-19 situation continues to improve and that is why, after consulting with medical professionals, we feel comfortable proceeding with the performances at this time, using these safety measures. However, like all of you, we continue to monitor the situation closely – should the situation deteriorate, please understand that we will cancel performances in the interests of public safety. Should that happen, full refunds will be available to all who request them.
Thank you very much – Holmes, Watson, and company can’t wait to see you!
Join Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson on a trip to the sinister Copper Beeches (played by the inimitable Bartow-Pell Mansion-Museum), where a desperate young governess finds herself at the center of a baffling mystery. Together with the famous detectives, we’re drawn deep into the secrets of the Rucastle family – their threatening hound, menacingly enthusiastic patriarch, strange requests and rules, the locked and forbidden room on the top floor, and the mysterious stranger who keeps appearing at the windows.
And while we wait for live performances to resume, Red Monkey Theater Group Artistic Director Tal Aviezer (Sherlock Holmes) is reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, in costume, for free, from his living room, on Youtube.
