Christmas Tales at the Lighthouse: Sherlock Holmes and the thief of Christmas - Εικόνα

Sherlock Holmes and the thief of Christmas
A case inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle’s hero

Watch the show in Greek:


For yet another year, Christmas Tales return to the Lighthouse, directed by Vasilis Mavrogeorgiou and starring Sherlock Holmes, in a festive tale of mystery: “Sherlock Holmes and the thief of Christmas”.

Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous hero invites us to follow him into the magical world of Christmas-time London. Amidst the joyful buzz of the city, where children sing carols and everyone exchanges gifts, Sherlock Holmes has only one thing on his mind: the case of the thief of Christmas. He looks for the blue sapphire, chases after the mysterious turkey and, under every snow-capped roof, finds clues that will bring him even closer… not just to the answer to the mystery, but to the meaning of Christmas.

In a show for children and adults alike, the actors bring to life, in a most magical way, the streets, the smells and the light drizzle of festive London. They transform into the strange and lovable characters that Sherlock meets, and draw the children (and their parents!) into a game of mystery, that will make them think hard and laugh even harder.
