It’s only a five-hour, 48-minute drive from Bemidji to Lanesboro. Walk in the park, right? Assuming you’re starting from somewhere closer, it really is a nice drive to the bluff country below Rochester.

Commonweal is running Steven Dietz’s “Sherlock Holmes and the Final Adventure” and “Blithe Spirit” in repertory. Artistic director Hal Cropp assumes Holmes’ Inverness cape and hat, with Commonweal regulars Jeremy van Meter and David Hennessey as Watson and Dr. Moriarty. Michael Bigelow Dixon, the former literary director at the Guthrie, directed this show.

“Blithe Spirit” has Scott Dixon and Amanda Rafuse in the cast. Craig Johnson directed Noël Coward’s frothy comedy about an English gent haunted by his dead first wife.

The shows alternate, with “Spirit” on stage Friday, Saturday and Monday (ending Sept. 7) and “Holmes” Thursday, Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 10).

7:30 p.m. Thu.-Sat. & Mon., 1:30 p.m. Sat.-Sun. • 208 Parkway Av. N., Lanesboro • $15-$30 • 1-800-657-7025 or www.commonwealtheatre.org
