Christmas is one of the best times of the year to catch live performances. The Christmas season goes hand-in-hand with tales meant to teach lessons about humanity, selflessness, and the true the reason for the season. Seeing these stories live is one of the best ways to connect with loved ones and strangers alike and create a true sense of Christmas spirit, and luckily Houston is hosting a huge selection of Christmas performances this year. One of the most highly anticipated Christmas events this year is Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol produced by Houston’s own Company OnStage. Best of all, is offering half-price tickets – but hurry, because these are going fast.

Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol combines two beloved Victorian-era tales: Sherlock Holmes stories and Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The play takes place on Christmas Eve when famed detective Sherlock Holmes is feeling particularly grouchy and considering retiring. The ghost of his archenemy Professor Moriarty appears, warning him he will be visited by three familiar apparitions who give Holmes a new perspective on his past, present, and future. Naturally, Holmes learns a lesson or two and discovers that maybe the detective life – and Christmas – are for him after all.
