Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective first came to life in 1887 and still is a great inspiration for story after story today. The unstoppable Sherlock Holmes is on the hunt for his next mystery. Master of disguise and deduction, with encyclopedic knowledge and the ability to unlock a clue from a muddy footprint, Holmes has yet to be confounded by a mystery. With house companion Dr. John Watson at his side, there is no adventure that has out ventured him. Now a new kind of villain is on the loose and London's police have lost the scent. Down every shadowy alleyway lies another trick, another trap. Is Sherlock above the case, or is the opponent leading his every move? Travel back to the origins of Doyle’s distinct detector and find out if he can stand up to the challenge. The game's afoot.
Audition material. Please choose one of the “Fractured Fairytales” (available in the office) and prepare it for reading. No need to memorize. Pay extra attention to the contrast between the narrator’s voice and the voices of each character. Play big and feel free to make each character as eccentric or distinguished as you wish.
