Casting Call

The Guild Tackles Holmes

Auditions take place Jan 13 & 14

Submitted by Larry Hamm, CPG


n this mystery/thriller which has become a regional staple, it is April 1922 and the cast of William Gillette’s latest Broadway revival of "Sherlock Holmes" has assembled for a weekend of relaxation at his magnificent medieval castle on a bluff overlooking the Connecticut River.


For entertainment, actor-manager, playwright and heart-throb William Gillette, best known for his 30-year portrayal of the famous crime sleuth Sherlock Holmes, has arranged a séance.


Now the scene is set for his greatest role. Someone is trying to murder Gillette and he suspects it is one of his guests. Intrepid, eccentric and wildly romantic, Gillette plans to solve the case himself à la Sherlock Holmes.


Auditions take place Jan 13 & 14 2013 at 7:00 PM at the Chilliwack Players Guild Hall,
45530 Spadina Ave
