Auditions for Sherlock Holmes by MAD, Mar 1

Auditions for Sherlock Holmes by MAD, Mar 1

Goddard’s Music and Drama Club presents:
An online public reading of:
Sherlock Holmes – A Drama in Four Acts
By William Gillette and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Directed by Jon Gardner

Auditions, Monday, March 1, 2021, via online form.
Performance, Saturday, March 27, 2021 at 8pm, online.

To participate, fill in https://forms.gle/uF3PvvAYpKe7RcmZ9 no later than Monday, March 1. Public reading will be Saturday, March 27 at 8pm, viewable via YouTube

Location: Goddard Space Flight Center’s MAD Theater, online.

MAD is forming a play-reading group, which will rehearse several times and then perform public readings of scripts. The goal of the group is to have fun participating.

The group will start with the play, Sherlock Holmes – A Drama in Four Acts. Casting for the play will be done through an online Google form with the possibility of online auditions if necessary. There will be two to three weekly rehearsals during March, leading up to the final public reading. All participation will be virtual over Zoom.

“Sherlock Holmes – A Drama in Four Acts,” was written by William Gillette with help from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It is an original story, not an adaptation. It was first produced in 1899 with Gillette playing Holmes; a role that he repeated many times over the next 35 years. Gillette’s use of a deerstalker cap and curved pipe in his depiction of Holmes have become enduring symbols of the character. In another important element of theatrical history, an early production featured a teen-aged Charlie Chaplin playing the pageboy Billy.

Notice: This play depicts cocaine use.

Performance will be live online. Click here.
