Two Tri-City actors appear in a virtual theatrical production that runs this weekend only.
Coquitlam’s Simon Abraham and Nikki Bryce of Port Moody make their debut performances with Theatre in the Country (TIC) for the online show Sherlock Holmes and the First Baker Street Irregular.
Each fills two roles: Abraham portrays Wilson, a pawnbroker with flaming red hair, and Ryder, a senior attendant at the Cosmopolitan Hotel while Bryce is a police constable and Ross, a trustee with the League of Red-Headed Gentlemen.
Running May 7 and 8 via Zoom, the show written by Brian Guehring is set in Victorian London — early in Arthur Conan Doyle’s career as a sleuth.
And it features seven young actors, including a couple of theatre students from the high school where TIC artistic director Reg Park teaches: El Cox takes the lead part of Wiggins, a 14-year-old street urchin who befriends Sherlock Holmes, and Kasey Lozinski, 12, portrays George.
