pr Imagine that you’re reading a crime novel. It’s almost the end of the story and three characters are already dead, and a fourth might be next. All signs point to the quirky mailman who seems a little too friendly and appears at the most suspicious times. You think you have it all figured out, until a last-minute plot twist reveals that the killer is the seemingly innocent owner of the corner bakery that used poison in his cupcakes—who knew?
Everyone loves a good mystery. The intrigue, the suspense, the twists and turns that in the end that leaves you wondering what comes next—all the elements of a cliffhanger tale that will make you insist that the culprit is Professor Plum in the library with the candlestick. This fall, theatre audiences will have the opportunity to don their own detective hats during a night of murder, mayhem, and a bit of mischief for local theatre group Clairemont Act One’s (CAO) “No Sh*t Sherlock!” A collection of comedic one-act plays featuring classic favorites such as Sherlock Holmes, a butler and maid duo who are up to no good and many more, theatre-goers are sure to have a puzzling good time.
Created by a group of local theatre enthusiasts that wished to bring the excitement and enrichment of live performance to Clairemont, their passion has continued for the past six years since the group’s inception. CAO is run entirely by volunteers, sponsored by donations and brought to life by members of the community who simply love the stage.
