HAYWARD – Sherlock Holmes is on the case starting Feb. 14 at the Douglas Morrisson Theatre.

“Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure” by Steven Dietz combines two of Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories, “The Scandal in Bohemia” and “The Final Problem.” The production, based on the original 1899 script by William Gillette and Doyle, won the 2007 Edgar Award for Best Mystery Play.

The whodunit previews Feb. 14 and opens at 8 p.m. Feb. 15, running through March 10. Tickets are $10 preview, $29 other performances, with discounts for seniors and students. A special Saturday matinee is scheduled for 2 p.m. March 2, followed by a “talk-back” session with the director and cast. Call 510-881-6777 or go to

If you haven’t been to the Douglas Morrisson Theatre at 22311 N. Third St. in Hayward, it’s a lovely theater, but it can be a little tricky to find. The website,, has fairly detailed directions, but a GPS or an old-fashioned map might not hurt. The theater used to be called Hayward Little Theatre, next to the Hayward Senior Center and Japanese Gardens. It’s run by Hayward Area Recreation and Park District.

    The quality of the productions at DMT are very high and this is always well worth attending. I have always wondered why HARD has never tried to make it easier to get to and to ameliorate the lousy parking. This is a definite benefit of living in Hayward.
