Town Players of Pittsfield Auditions for Reading of “The Sherlock Entreaty”

Got the acting bug? Come join Town Players of Pittsfield on either Mon. Feb. 26 or Tues. Feb. 27 at 7pm in Room K111 at BCC to audition for the March staged reading of The Sherlock Entreaty by Charmaine Spencer, directed by Kevin Romano.
From The New Play Exchange: “An old school chum of Doctor Watson is a clerk in England’s Foreign Office and, when a secret treaty is stolen from his desk, he flies to Sherlock Holmes for help. But, it seems Sherlock Holmes is merely a figment of Watson’s imagination and success as a mystery writer. Still, faced with his friend’s professional and emotional collapse, Watson vows to produce the famous detective and hires an egotistical actor, Walter Pling to play the role. Somehow, as comedy mixes with mystery, the crime is solved, Pling embarks on a new career and Watson gets the girl.”
The reading will take place on Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 2:00 pm in the same location. For more information, please contact the director at
