Director Thomas Rosengren has this to say about the play: “It's elementary my dear. The stories of Sherlock Holmes have always intrigued me as a director because Holmes and his faithful sidekick John Watson always travel all over the world solving mysteries and deceiving sometimes the audience right along with their foe.”
The audience will be taken on an adventure of epic proportions from 221 B Baker Street in London to the near east from a horse chase to a hot air balloon ride. From swashbuckling to sitting before the incomparable Sigmund Freud played by Jais Gossman and Queen Victoria played by Taylor Barber.
The audience will have to watch carefully, use their imagination and be willing to go on the adventure of a lifetime with Sherlock Holmes, played by Dean Madsen, and John Watson, played by Andrew Benson.
Other cast members include Nathan Klaers as Professor Moriarty, Lilly Wattnem as Irene Adler, Courtney Carlson as Mary Morstan Watson and Corin Gauer as Mycroft Holmes.
The stagehands are Becca Schmidt, Kayla Watson and Sonja Madsen.
