Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Dancing Men at Lyndhurst
Written by Tal Aviezer, directed by Holland Pope Renton

Tickets are $35.00 for adults and $30.00 for seniors and children (16 and under) and are available at Lyndhurst.org or by calling 888-71-TICKETS. Group sales available at 914-303-6840.
Sherlock Holmes (Tal Aviezer) and Doctor Watson (Joe Laureiro) are called upon to solve an odd case. Mr. Hilton Cubitt (Michael Muldoon) is baffled when childish drawings of little dancing men mysteriously appear in and around his beautiful country estate in Darbyshire, terrifying his young American wife (Zoey Rutherford). Are the strange drawings a bizarre prank, or a warning of deadly danger? Join us for an original dramatic adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic story as we explore Lyndhurst mansion, a true Gothic revival country house in the heart of the Hudson Valley, for the clues to unravel one of Holmes’ most thrilling adventures.
Lyndhurst, a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is a Gothic Revival masterpiece on the banks for the Hudson River in Tarrytown, NY at 635 South Broadway (Route 9). Designed by Alexander Jackson Davis in 1838 as a country cottage for Brigadier General William Paulding, who was twice mayor of New York City, it was expanded by the same architect between 1865 and 1867 for industrialist George Merritt. The now grand mansion was purchased in 1880 by railroad magnate Jay Gould, and members of his family continued to use it as their summer home until 1961.
