To enhance the audience’s experience, the July 7, 14 and 21 performances include interactive post-show talkback sessions with the cast and director. Clackamas Rep will also celebrate opening night with a champagne and dessert reception in the lobby following the June 30 performance.

“If you liked ‘The 39 Steps,’ a faced-paced farce we presented a few seasons back, then you’ll love this rendition of Sherlock’s ‘Baskerville,’” said Director David Smith-English. “It’s a multi-media delight filled with hilarious repartee, quick costume and character changes, and beautiful custom-designed projections.”

Baskerville features the terrific John San Nicolas as Sherlock Holmes. A company member at Artists Rep, he has appeared in numerous shows there, including most recently “The Talented Ones.” San Nicolas has also worked at PCS, Third Rail, Imago, and Broadway Rose.

Dennis Kelly, playing the role of Dr. John Watson, has worked with Clackamas Rep many times, including leading roles in “Virginia Woolf,” “The Tempest” and last summer’s “One Slight Hitch.” Kelly, Smith-English confided, is working on his best Watson mustache in preparation for “Baskerville.”

Mark Schwahn, Alex Fox and Jayne Stevens round out the cast — and each play about 20 different characters!

Schwahn appeared in Clackamas Rep’s “Odd Couple” and played the exasperated dad in “One Slight Hitch.” Fox appeared in CRT’s “One Man, Two Guvnors,” where he extinguished the on-stage fire. Stevens, who recently took on an administrative role with Clackamas Rep, has been performing with the company since its debut show, “Moon Over Buffalo” in 2005.

In addition to Director David Smith-English, the Clackamas Repertory Theatre production team includes Shenekah Telles, costumer; Annie Rimmer-Weeks and Orie Weeks, projection and sound designers; Christopher Whitten, scenic and lighting designer; and Jennifer Whitten, properties designer.
