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.
Tickets are $20 and are available online, officials said.
Filament Theatre Ensemble Managing Director Christian Libonati will direct the play by Jessica Wright Buha.
The cast includes Alex Tey, Alex Ireys, Sara Sawicki, Aissa Guerra, Nathan Drackett, Andrew Marikis, Kristina Loy, Sarah Hecht, Jessica Kearney, David Gordezky, Roberto Jonson and Suzy Jackson, officials said.
