York College Senior Directs Holmes Mystery
Ken Ludwig’s dark comedy Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery will be presented at York College Friday and Saturday, April 28 and 29, at 7:30 p.m. This show is the senior capstone project for Samatha Berry of Falls City, Nebraska. Berry has directed one-acts at York College in previous semesters. For her final project, she is presenting this full-length show, which she describes as suspenseful and hilarious.
The show features five actors portraying 35 different characters. Much of the comedy comes from the over-the-top costumes, wigs and accents used to differentiate the characters, said Berry. The show features the acting talents of recent York College alumnus Jameson Trauger as Sherlock. His faithful companion, Watson, is played by Nathan Clark. Boone Berry, Brinna Horvath, and Ryan Harrison play the other 33 characters.

This show is free and open to the public. It will be performed in Gurganus Hall (corner of 10th and Kiplinger Ave.) on the York College campus. No tickets or reservations are required.
After graduation in May, Berry will travel to New York City for a learning trip hosted by the York College theatre department. Berry, a theatre communication major, plans to pursue a career in directing. She has her first directing job lined up, as she will return to Falls City in May to direct a year’s worth of productions for the Harkendorff Events Center, including children’s theatre, a murder mystery, a melodrama, and a Christmas show.
