RAYLEIGH Operatic and Dramatic Society (RODS) are presenting a summer family pantomime ‘Sheer Luck Holmes’ this May, at The Mill Arts and Events Centre.
The show, by Bob Heather and Cheryl Barrett, was originally planned for May 2020, but was postponed due to the pandemic.
A spokesperson for RODS said: “Fortunately, we are now able to revive the production and the cast are looking forward to entertaining Rayleigh.”
The show tells the amusing story of Sheer Luck Holmes, as RODS explain: “London town is abuzz with the news that famous paintings keep being stolen.
“Sergeant Arthur and his hapless constables PC Cone and PC Oil have their work cut out trying to keep law and order due to their enthusiastic, but frankly hopeless methods.
“Meanwhile arch villainess Mary Arty tops up her art collection and seeks to take over the criminal underground, and there also seems to be something fishy about Hudson the butcher.
“Sheer Luck Holmes, along with his gadget mad partner Dottie Watson and faithful hound Baskerville are called upon to help solve the case and hilarious antics begin!
“But when Dottie’s daughter Wendy and Prince Hugo are kidnapped Holmes decides to confront his worst enemy and her secret accomplice to get to the bottom of this mystery and call time on all this crime.
“The game is afoot, but will Holmes crack the case and save the day or will Mary Arty spoil his party?
“To see, come along and join RODS as we bring this comical pantomime to the heart of Rayleigh – you’re sure to be in your element!”
On show from 14 to 16 May.
Performances take place on Thursday and Friday at 7.30pm, Saturday at 1pm and 6.30pm
