Little Theater season kicks off with classic British whodunnit

Mystery, comedy, fantasy and drama are all on the menu for the Little Theater of Walla Walla's new season, which starts Sept. 24.

And what better way to kick things off than to accompany Britain's most famous detective in Sherlock Holmes, The Final Adventure.

Director Becky Hatley says the opening production is a blend of veteran actors as well as a few newcomers.

It wll be one of those newcomers, Craig Allen, who will portray the infamous Sherlock, who is obsessed with finding the notorious Prof. Moriarty, played by Al Chang.
