In their second performance of the year, the HLS Drama Troupe took to the stage presenting Sherlock.
Sherlock includes mystery, romance, action, danger, and comedy. The colorful, entertaining characters take you on a journey down the streets of London in the late 1800s to discover how letters written by a dead woman may cause a world war. The evil Moriarty wants those letters—but so does Holmes. The game’s afoot! Sherlock wants London to be a safe place, but that means he has to risk his own life to rid the streets of the evil work of Moriarty. The HLS Drama Troupe’s performance of this adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective story delighted all ages. The Troupe added their own special touch with a performance during the show by a live band made up of cast members who call themselves “The Sound of the Baskervilles.”
Below are the highlights.

As many observe this very solemn day in history, the HLS Upper School choir performed “The Seven Last Words of Christ.” Led by Dr. Louie Bailey, the choir read biblical passages and meditations along with performing beautifully sung arrangements. To close the service, a bell chimed 33 times to signify the age of Jesus when he died.
