The Mystery of the Vanishing Violin

Monday, February 19- Friday, February 23, 10am-3pm

“My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don’t know.” And so begins Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective series featuring the world’s preeminent detective. However, this time around, Sherlock finds the tables have been turned and it is his beloved violin that has gone missing. He needs your help in solving this personal case, the Mystery of the Vanishing Violin.  Sherlock’s partner, Dr. Watson is distraught with worry. Sherlock seems too close to the case to take an objective lead in pursuing possible suspects. He humbly asks for your participation to close the book on this baffling case. Will you lend a hand?
