About the event

Step back in time with two different “who-done-its” presented as radio-style broadcasts, complete with live sound effects and commercials, with two different detectives: "Sherlock Holmes Adventure of the Copper Beeches," about a governess in peril, and "Nick Carter and the Strange Dr. Devolo," in which Manhattan millionaires are missing. The same cast-of-six performs Holmes, Watson and other characters from Victorian England, and then switches to Nick Carter and friends solving crimes in New York City during World War II.
While Sherlock Holmes was solving crimes in England, Nick Carter was busy in Manhattan. Carter first appeared as the hero in a serialized novel, "The Old Detective's Pupil," in "The New York Weekly" in 1886 – a year before Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Holmes' first caper, "A Study in Scarlet." In 1930, the Sherlock Holmes radio series began with "The Adventure of the Speckled Band" and in 1943, the Nick Carter series was launched with "The Strange Dr. Devolo." While "Copper Beeches" is not the original script by Edith Meiser (this one is adapted by Gayle Stahlhuth), "The Strange Dr. Devolo" IS the original script, used with permission by Conde Nast.
Numerous Nick Carter novels were written by a variety of people through 1990, with Nick changing with the times. In 1964, the series changed from "Nick Carter: Master Detective" to "Nick Carter: Killmaster" to compete with James Bond and other international super spies.

About the event

Students perform an adaptation of this beloved Kenneth Grahame classic about a poetry-loving dragon. The story revolves around youngsters who try to protect this literate dragon, but discover that it’s difficult to hide such a large and talkative animal. When the townsfolk learn of his existence, they hire St. George to slay him. But does he? Or do the good citizens realize that not all dragons are to be feared?
