"Sherlock Holmes and the
Case of the Christmas Angels"

comes to the
California Center for the Arts Escondido!


"Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Angels" brings an exciting new case to the world's
greatest detective, told with faint echoes of classic holiday tales you already know and love.
The award-winning North County Players and a cast of 20 brings the joy of Christmas
(along with a head-scratching whodunnit) to every Holmes fan
(some adult situations, okay for most kids)

The production is further embellished by elaborate sets, colorful period costumes, memorable
holiday music and dancers, and the distinctive Victorian Era dialogue of Holmes' England.

Comments from reviewers and attendees of past shows:

"North County Players shows are very different than most stage productions out there in that they are packed with musical themes, sound effects, and cues. This creates a feeling that you're more watching a movie than a theater production. Don't miss this experience."

pleasant history lesson I've ever had!"
