NTID Performing Arts Program presents 'Sherlock Holmes and the Crucifer of Blood'
May 5, 2016 - 7:30pm - May 8, 2016 - 5:00pm
NTID Performing Arts Program presents "Sherlock Holmes and the Crucifer of Blood" By Paul Giovanni and directed by Gerald Argetsinger
In faraway India, a group of British soldiers steal a Royal Treasure and sign a Blood Oath to protect their secret. Now in England, 30 years later, the men are being murdered. Sherlock Holmes is called in to discover the secret, the curse and the killer in a tale that spans from India, to Baker Street, to the spooky Pondicherry Lodge, to a sinister Opium Den and a boat chase on the Thames that finally leads to the shocking revelation of truth, revenge and guilt.
Join us to celebrate the retirement of Gerald Argetsinger after 40 years of dedicated service to RIT/NTID.
