TUPPER LAKE - Tupper Lake Middle/High School actors will solve a mystery this weekend.

Their production of "Sherlock Holmes" opens Friday with a second performance on Saturday.

The play, written in 1977, is an amalgamation of different Sherlock Holmes stories, complete with the evil Professor Moriarty. Lance Vaillancourt stars as the famous detective, Jacob Moeller plays his nemesis, and Dakota Larabie plays Holmes' sidekick, Dr. Watson.

Director Shane McIntosh said the cast and crew are probably the biggest he's ever worked with, with 43 or 44 students working on the production in total.

"And these are quality actors this year, too," McIntosh said. "Even though there's so many of them, they do a really good job.

"I'd put them against any high school play."

All of the actors speak in British accents.

"I didn't even tell them that they should," McIntosh said. "They just did it on their own."

McIntosh said the cast is a dedicated bunch that's easy to work with.

Curtains Friday and Saturday open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
