A time machine, murder, mystery, and the dynamic duo of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson took the stage Thursday night in The Secret Case Of Sherlock Holmes at Steinbach Regional Secondary School.

Troy Friesen, who played Sherlock Holmes, says he was a bit nervous before taking the stage, but feels their performance went well and any slips were recovered quickly and, for the most part, unbeknownst to the audience. Friesen adds there were a couple favourite moments during the production.

"I don't mind when we're talking to Professor Moriarty and both [Watson and I] are getting super intense. I don't know how to fight in this, I'm just a goofy character. I just have my fists up and I don't even know what I'm doing. Also, some of the stuff that was just Watson and I, those are always fun cause then we can just goof off."

Devon De Ruyck, who played Dr. John Watson, says he wasn't too anxious opening night and hopes the audience continues to enjoy the production.

"I hope everybody gets the laughs. I hope they laugh in the similar places they laughed in [Thursday night]. I hope we can get the show going, I hope we don't get too tired, I hope we can keep the energy going in the next two nights."

Shows take place Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. at the SRSS theatre.
