PSHS Drama Club to present ‘Sherlock Holmes’

Special to The PREVIEW

An old classic will be brought to the Pagosa Springs High School (PSHS) stage in a new way beginning this Friday and Saturday, Oct. 28 and 29.

The PSHS Drama Club will present “Sherlock Homes” by Tim Kelly, with a mix of newcomers and veterans taking the stage.

Brianna Downing as Sherlock Holmes refreshes this role with her approach to the character, as does Kaya Knox, who plays Watson. Audience members are sure to shiver at the sheer vileness of Moriarty, played by Mattie Corbett.

“We’ve had a heck of a good time putting this play together, in spite of some unavoidable interruptions,” said director Sean Downing, “but the real fun is when the audience shows up. This cast will surprise you — they’ve surprised me with something new pretty much every rehearsal. You haven’t seen ‘Sherlock’ done this way before.”

The play opens in the high school auditorium this Friday, Oct. 28, with additional performances scheduled for Oct. 29, and again next weekend, Nov. 4 and 5.

The doors will open at 6 p.m. on production days, with the play beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 at the door. The show lasts about an hour and a half with an intermission halfway through.
