The World's Most Famous Detective in a New Mystery Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Suicide Club -- By Jeffrey HatcherBased on "The Suicide Club" by Robert Louis Stevenson and Characters created by Sir Arthur Conan DoyleDirected by Mark Shanahan and Gregory BoydMature themes; General audiences.Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Suicide Club” and featuring beloved characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jeffrey Hatcher (Mrs. Mannerly, 2010) crafts a smart new Sherlock Holmes mystery. Having played Sherlock Holmes in The Crucifer of Blood (2009) and Sherlock Holmes (2003), Alley Theatre Company Artist Todd Waite will again play the iconic and illustrious detective in a spectacular, lavish production. Dark forces may be manipulating the deaths of prominent men in a plot so far reaching that the fate of Europe is at stake. It is up to the brilliant Detective Holmes and his old friend Dr. Watson to uncover the chilling secret of the “suicide club.”

The Rotary Club of Houston sponsored the “Hearts for Children” Festival in partnership with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services in Region 6 on Saturday, February 9th at the Harris County Department of Education. At the Festival 76 amazing children whose parent(s) rights have been terminated due to abuse, neglect or abandonment mixed and mingled with 41 prospective adoptive families (71 adults). A CPS spokesperson likened the event to speed dating where families licensed and looking to adopt met with foster children in a relaxed and fun filled atmosphere. The children were between the ages of 5 and 17, many were part of a sibling group. The fun filled four hours included activity booths assembled with the help of the Roteractors, a visit from Toro, the Texan’s Mascot, and a DJ who led the children and prospective parents in many fun games, activities and karaoke and a photo booth. A lunch catered by Chick Fil A was enjoyed by all the participants. Rotarians Joel Levine, Jesus Amezcua, Deb Theotokatos, Phil Hampton, Jim and Judy Behrman, and Rick Slemaker all had a great time organizing the event and volunteering the day of the Festival. The Rotary Club of Houston looks forward to hearing about the matches that were made as a result of the Festival from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.For more information or to be a part of the Youth Committee, contact Joel Levine at email@example.com or Jesus Amezcua at firstname.lastname@example.org.
