GST is delighted to present Sherlock Holmes: The Baker Street Irregulars by Eric Coble, adapted from the graphic novels by Tony Lee and Dan Boultwood.

Sherlock Holmes is missing, presumed dead after the fight at the Reichenbach Falls with his arch-enemy Moriarty. But a group of teenagers who Sherlock befriended - the Baker Street Irregulars - don't think he's really dead and convene on his home to investigate further. And when Eliza Mayhew arrives looking for Sherlock to help her find her missing grandfather, they take the case...

Audition Pieces:


Please contact us at if you want any more information or a copy of the script for reading.

Please note that, though you do not have to join the GST to audition, all actors in a GST show are required to be members.

Please further note that this is not a musical and there is no singing or dancing, hence no singing/dancing audition. So the ensemble is not a chorus in the sense you might be used to. However there are lots of opportunities for cameo parts, crowd scenes, audience participation, fights, and similar.
