     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts is presenting Aquila Theatre in “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” for one performance only on Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m.  
    According to Columbia Theatre/Fanfare Director Roy Blackwood, the legendary sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, takes the stage in this witty, fast-paced production by the acclaimed Aquila Theatre, and, as is customary with Aquila Theatre, there will be a twist to the production.     
    “The clever Holmes skillfully maneuvers the twisted web of London’s most intriguing cases with his split second deductions revealing intimate and useful details of a person’s life,” he said.  “Sherlock Holmes is a master of disguise and a brilliant actor, as well as a composer and musician – is there anything this character can’t do?”
    Tickets for the production range from $25 to $39 and are available at the Columbia Theatre box office Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. or by phone at (985) 543-4371. Patrons may also get tickets online at
