Audition for Legacy Productions’ ‘Sherlock Holmes and the Jersey Lily’

LeGacy Productions will hold auditions for the Mystery-Comedy “Sherlock Holmes and the Jersey Lily” at 7 p.m., Monday, November 1 at the Nevada Theatre, 401 Broad Street in Nevada City.

The production will be a co-production with Sacramento’s Chautauqua Playhouse in Carmichael. In “Sherlock Holmes and the Jersey Lily,” by Katie Forgette, beautiful actress Lily Langtry is seeking help with a small matter from the brilliant detective Sherlock Holmes. It involves blackmail, some missing jewels and the royal family. Our hero gets some help from his sidekick, Watson, and the famous Oscar Wilde as the evil Professor Moriarty tries yet again to foil the day.

The production will be directed by Warren Harrison and will play for six weekends at the Chautauqua Playhouse from March 11 through April 17 and then at the Nevada Theatre for four additional weekends from April 22 trough May 15. The cast will be represented by both Nevada County and Sacramento area actors and rehearsals will be held in both locations.

The roles available are for Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, Oscar Wilde and Lillie Langtry (late 30s to late 40s), Mrs. Tory and Mrs. McGlynn (mature women), and John Smythe / Abdul Karim (young man). The role of Professor Moriarty has been pre-cast. There are no monologues required, readings will be from the script.
