Current Reading Schedule


A Scandal in Bohemia and The Red-Headed League
Two short Sherlock Holmes mysteries by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

A Scandal in Bohemia
The Story: Sherlock Holmes finds himself evenly matched when he is employed by the King of Bohemia to retrieve an indiscreet photograph from the American actress and singer, Irene Adler.

The Red-Headed League
The Story: Holmes and Watson investigate the strange case of Jabez Wilson, who was recently offered employment by an organization known as the Red Headed League. For the grand sum of 4 pounds per week, he was to sit in an office and copy out entries from an encyclopedia, starting with the letter A. When after several weeks his employment is suddenly terminated, Mr. Wilson doesn't know what to think. Holmes quickly deduces that it was the location of his office as much as his red hair that resulted in him getting the employment in the first place.

By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Program Package Description

The reading series consists of Sherlock Holmes stories -- all original mysteries written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and read by actor, Greg Oliver Bodine.  These are one-hour readings (not performances) of 1-2 short stories -- no blocking or running around, so we don't need much room. 


Currently, we can schedule weeknight or weekend day readings only. Weeknight readings may be booked as early as 7pm. Weekend day readings may be scheduled between 12-8pm. 


NSTG provides poster and playbill design, pre-show music on a CD and portable player. No microphone necessary, but if you have one – great!
