‘Young Sherlock’ on stage at Shady Side Academy Middle School

Shady Side Academy Middle School students will present “Young Sherlock” on Nov. 9.

Shady Side Academy Middle School students will take people on a trip back in time during the fall play, “Young Sherlock.”

Audience members will be transported to Butterworth Academy, where the young Sherlock Holmes and his classmate John Watson evolve into expert sleuths.

The play is free and will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday in the school cafetorium, 500 Squaw Run Road East, Fox Chapel.

The cast includes 23 students who follow a mysterious script of kidnapping, psychics, bumbling sheriffs and foiled crimes. The story launches Sherlock’s career as a detective who can solve crimes even before the police can.

Sixth-grader Jeffrey Brunner stars as Sherlock Holmes. The play is directed by English teacher Camille MacRae, and produced by music teacher Randy Broker and art teacher Stefanie Vorrasi.

Choreography is by eighth-grader Elizabeth Kamin and properties and technical direction are by seventh-grader Leo Rickard and eighth-grader Zach Kamenov.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
