Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre Presents ‘Sherlock’s Last Case’

Dinner-theater performances start Friday and run through May 16 at Circle Bar B Guest Ranch

Travel back to foggy Victorian London to witness hair-raising twists and turns as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson take the stage at Circle Bar B Dinner Theatre for a mystery that’s part spoof, part loving tribute and all fun.

In Sherlock’s Last Case, Sean O’Shea as Sherlock and David Couch as Dr. Watson lead the iconic characters of Mrs. Hudson, played by Jean Hall, and Inspector Lestrade, played by William York Hyde, through a case of mistaken identities and intent. A beautiful young woman (Hannah Wolf) with secrets of her own further enhances the premise that no one may be whom they seem to be. Although not based on a book penned by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this Sherlock Holmes is written with the same flavor and flourish as the famous Victorian novelist. The play was written by Charles Marowitz and is directed by Jim Cook.

Beginning Friday and running through May 16, enjoy a delicious tri-tip barbecue dinner and theater Friday and Saturday evenings — with dinner at 7 p.m. and the show at 8 p.m. — and Sunday afternoon lunch at 1 p.m. and the matinees at 2 p.m. The dinner consists of Santa Maria tri-tip, chili beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans with red roasted tomatoes, green salad with your choice of dressing, and dessert. Lemonade, coffee and tea are served with the meal. The Circle Bar B Guest Ranch, 1800 Refugio Road, has a beautiful guest lodge with a full bar in which to congregate before the dinner and show.

Tickets are $45 per person for dinner and the theater. A senior discount of $37 is available for dinner and theater on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons. Season tickets as well as group rates are available. Click here for more information or call Susie Couch at the Circle Bar B box office at 805.967.1962.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
