Overview
Additional Information

Dr. Watson relates the tale of Holmes’ most baffling case in this world premiere comedy/mystery about the world’s greatest consulting detective. 

Holmes has a new client, Miss Helen Stoner, who is soon to be wed. However, the young lady is terrified that she will be dead before her wedding day arrives, just like her sister, two years earlier. And, like her sister, lately Helen has awakened in the night to hear an odd whistling sound outside her room. Yet when she flies to the door and looks out, the hallway is empty…

Much in the style of The 39 Steps, two actors play Holmes and Watson, while the remaining cast members play all the rest of the characters, switching hats, costumes, and accents in rapid fire changes to hilarious effect. Part classic suspense, part farce, Whistling in the Dark offers up both chills and laughter.

Recommended for middle school and older

Subarea:Rockford East State

Directions:
The main entrance to Rockford University is at 5050 East State Street, however it is much easier to reach the theater from the back entrance of the campus (right). Taking the back entrance off of Turner Street, the first building to come into view is the Clark Arts Center (which contains the Cheek Theatre), with public parking lots on the left.
