Youth Players Assist Sherlock Holmes at Depot

Burgeoning local actors in The Baker Street Irregulars

The Depot Theatre Youth Players will be entertaining the young and old under the big top in their presentation of The Baker Street Irregulars this June.

First appearing in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Sherlock Holmes story A Study in Scarlet, the Baker Street Irregulars are a group of street children (played by Anna Rowe, Sofia Wallis, Sam Bates, Daniel Phillips, Lorelei McCarthy, Grace Vogel and Gael Frezza), led by Wiggins (Adam Cabo), who assist Holmes from time to time.

This time around, they may be the only hope of the Scotland Yard’s Lestrade and his men (Owen Edelson, Maya Gelber, Charlie Keegan). Upon investigating a mysterious murder at Wainwright’s Circus, Sherlock Holmes mysteriously falls gravely ill and is unable to perform his usual duties.

The Irregulars show up and get the low-down from the apprentice acrobats (Sophie Sabin, April Ransom, Fiona Shanahan, Kate Meisner), fortune tellers (Joia McKelvey and Hannah Benson), clowns (Gabriel Berger, Jude Columb, Senan Scott-Hamblen), animal trainers (Aurora McKee, Alex Danilov, Kieran Warger, Lola Ritell) and other entertainers (Mason Sharpley, Chloe Rowe, Kat Buslovich, Maia Keller, and Raunaq Kapoor), as well as the circus owner (Sebastian Scott-Hamblen) and his daughters (Josephine Russell and May Columb). With their snooping and clever detective work, the Baker Street Irregulars solve the crime and discover the mystery behind Sherlock’s sudden illness.

These talented young actors are led by directors Fay Gerbes Pacht and Thomas Kelley. Performances are Friday, June 5, at 7 p.m., Saturday, June 6, at 4 and 7 p.m., and Sunday, June 7, at 1 and 4 p.m. Tickets are $10 each and are available at Tickets are limited, so reserve while seats are still available.
