Holmes And Watson Take Stage At Sprague Theatre

Never before has such a mystery been presented at the Sprague Community Theater–until now. Starting October 26th, a highly entertaining adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famed detective story of Sherlock Holmes will take the stage. New Artists Productions brings a large cast of young actors to entertain patrons of all ages.

The play, by Tim Kelly, combines mystery, romance, action, danger and laughter. A damsel in distress has letters written by a dead girl that will cause grave international problems. Professor Moriarty wants those letters; so does Sherlock Holmes. The game’s afoot! But not before the Professor’s gang has London in its grip.
Only young Holmes understands the true objective the Professor has in mind (too sinister to reveal here), and he’s willing to put his own life on the line to stop it. Holmes will once again be joined by his famous sidekick Dr. Watson in the crime fight.

“The play has been adapted for a young cast and written with excellent character roles for our 22 actors,” commented Anita Almich, who co-founded New Artists Productions with her husband Dan.
“This is a sure-fire, colorful and unusual play guaranteed to delight the performers and have the audience cheering,” added Almich “Rehearsals have been so much fun and the kids are truly getting excited about developing their character, planning their costuming and make-up, and developing the ever-changing plot. There are many surprises planned for this presentation.”

The audience will experience life on the streets of London in 1890. There are Londoners, street vendors, political activists, and characters up to more than what appears.

The cast members are Kristina Allen, Aubrey Crompton, Kylie Gomes, Michael Guerin, Hunter Hausler, Claudia, Russell, Natalie, and Isabella Jones, Olivia Kincaid, Nathan Malamud, Alyssa Matas, Amelia Russell, Elli and Alexander Schulz, Marisa Smith, Natalie Vincent, Emily and Dustin Wilson, Daniel and Rachael Wood, and Nathan Woodruff.

Show dates for Sherlock Holmes are October 26 – 28 and November 2 – 4. Show times are Fridays/Saturdays at 7pm; Sundays at 2pm.
Show tickets, priced at $10 for adults; $8 for Senior Citizens; and, $5 for students (K-12), are available at Bandon True Value Hardware and Chetco Federal Credit Union, or by calling the Almichs at 541-347-2517.

All proceeds support future activities of New Artists Productions, which are offered at no expense to the participants.
