The Game's Afoot or Holmes for the Holidays
The County Seat Theater presents The Game's Afoot or Holmes for the Holidays. It is December 1936, and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members for a weekend of holiday revelry. But when one of the guests is murdered, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. It is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears.
The intended outcome of the event pass program is to allow the patrons to experience different genres of art, music , and theater programs and to attend different theater productions in locations they may not have been able to attend. A survey was distributed to receive feedback from those attending the program.
Surveys were distributed to patrons when they received the tickets at the library locations. 29% of respondents stated this was the first time attending a Legacy event. 25% of respondents stated they would have not been able to attend this Legacy ticketed event on their own.
12 libraries provided space, staff, and additional promotion for the programs and approximately 8 regional newspapers provided marketing through press releases, photos and interviews with artists and performers.
