PORTAGE PARK — Tickets are on sale now for the Filament Theatre Ensemble's production of "Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of Portage Park," an interactive performance that will send audience members through the streets of Portage Park to thwart a nefarious plot.

The performance calls on the audience to help Holmes crack the case by searching for clues on foot or on bikes, theater officials said.

Performances will take place at 11 a.m. Saturdays May 21-June 25 and at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturdays between July 9-July 23 at 4041 N. Milwaukee Ave. No performances will take place June 11-July 2, officials said.

The performances are recommended for those older than 8, officials said.

Attendees can choose between a walking group — which will accommodate those in wheelchairs — or a biking group. Bicyclists must provide their own bicycles and helmets.

The performance part of a larger push led by the Six Corners Association to make the area around Irving Park Road and Cicero and Milwaukee avenues more friendly to bicyclists and pedestrians.

Tickets are $20 and are available online, officials said.
