Bear Creek School’s Upper School drama students will present “An Evening of Mystery,” three one-act plays based on the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, on Nov. 17-18.

All performances are open to the public at The Bear Creek School Cornerstone Theater, 8905 208th Ave. N.E., Redmond. For more information, visit

Performances will take place at 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on both dates.

Adapted and directed by Dr. Ron Lynch, “The Beryl Coronet,” “The Copper Beeches” and “The Blue Carbuncle” represent but a tiny portion of the 56 short stories penned by Doyle, a practicing medical physician of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

In his tales, Sherlock Holmes, a consulting detective, is depicted as a man of advanced intellect who solves crimes using deduction, inference and observation. His skills and methods are far superior to those of Scotland Yard and quite often give rise to embarrassment for the local investigative establishment. The famous detective’s adventures are chronicled by his good friend and companion, Dr. Watson. Following Holmes on his journeys, Watson often finds himself at a loss as he tries to keep pace with the adventuresome sleuth.

“These three condensed Doyle mysteries will provide you with an evening of enjoyable entertainment. The Bear Creek actors are very excited to share their interpretations of the various characters and plots which develop as the stories unfold,” reads a press release.

Main characters in this production will be played by the following Bear Creek students:

“The Beryl Coronet”: Holmes, Justin Haman, and Watson, Rylan Gauthier

“The Copper Beeches”: Holmes, Jack Carruth, and Watson, Jack McDonough

“The Blue Carbuncle: Holmes, Alex Gephart, and Watson, Victor Gill

In lieu of charging admission, donations will be accepted to help complete Bear Creek’s Performing Arts Center.
