Play (non-musical)

Holmes JR High

By: Elisabeth Giffin Speckman

Something strange is afoot at Holmes Jr. High, threatening the end of year festivities as the middle school prepares for 8th grade graduation. Jamie Watts, the principal’s son, is determined to solve the mystery and enlists fellow students Cheryl Locke and Lee Strade to help save the day. A fun, comedic mystery loosely based on everyone’s favorite detective.
