Adventure and intrigue abound at the Muse Theater's production of "Sherlock Holmes."

The script was written by Kira and Jon-Michael Rutter of Itsy Bitsy Broadway.

"You know, you get to hear about some of the previous adventures and more well-known ones, but it is a totally new adventure," said Dave Bond, who is directing the 22-person cast.

The titular character and John Watson will face off once more against Moriarty in Muse Theater's production.

Jon-Michael Rutter will portray Sherlock Holmes, with Mike Azar playing his trusty friend, John Watson. Charity Telford will play Mrs. Hudson and Kira Rutter will play Mary Morstan.

"Rehearsals have been going really well," Bond said. "This is my first time in the directors chair, usually I'm on stage, so this has been a whole new experience for me. But rehearsals have been going great and I expect the show to be superbly entertaining."

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 3 and older. They are available at the door, located inside Jefferson City's Capital Mall at 3600 Country Club Drive, or you can reserve them online at itsybitsybroadway.com.

"Sherlock Holmes" opens Feb. 22 and runs Feb. 23-24. Evening shows start at 6 p.m. and the Saturday matinee starts at 2 p.m.

"It's an entertaining ride that has both monsters that are animals and humans," Bond said.
