    TONIGHT & TOMORROW NIGHT! The MHS Drama Department will present MISS HOLMES by C.M. Walsh, on Friday, November 8th and Saturday, November 9th at 7:00 pm in the Auditorium at MHS.
    An anonymous note – a frightened young woman – a police inspector who wives have a habit of turning up dead…. Inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this theatrical fan-fiction re-examines the world of Holmes and Watson, exploring the added challenges and risks faced by these two iconic characters if they were women. Come prepared for a true murder-mystery, with plenty of humor thrown in! Tickets will be sold at the door, day of the show, with box-office open at 6:15 pm. All seats are $6. Activity passes and MCSD partner passes will be accepted. For more information, visit www.muskiedrama.wordpress.com
