Tune In: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Virtual Series

Red Monkey Theater Group (RMTG)—the College of Mount Saint Vincent’s resident theater company—is serving the Mount community and beyond during the coronavirus pandemic by offering a free YouTube reading series of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

As celebrities make times more exciting for those stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic—including actor Patrick Stewart, who reads daily Shakespeare sonnets, and former First Lady Michelle Obama, who reads books to children—RMTG’s artistic director, Tal Aviezer has launched a YouTube series reading from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

So far, RMTG has featured five readings—A Case of Identity, Part 1, A Case of Identity, Part 2, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, Part 1, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, Part 2, and The Five Orange Pips, Part 1.

Be sure to keep up with RMTG’s virtual episodes on their YouTube channel!
