The Amazing Cast, "The Hound of the Baskervilles"

Preview audiences last night raved about this production; cast and crew alike are more than excited for tonight’s opening.

Here’s a little behind-the-scenes information on Sam Mink, one of WCT’s favorite actors, portraying one of the most well-known characters of books, stage and screen – Sherlock Holmes:

Sam is pleased to be back working at WCT again. Some of the theatre’s most memorable productions  featured Sam, including Proof, Glengarry Glen Ross, Play It Again Sam, The Three Sisters, The Compleat Works of Wm. Shakespeare (Abridged), A Midsummer Night’s Dream, various readings and workshops, and most recently another well known “character,” the role of Larry Olivier in Orson’s Shadow. Other favorite shows he has done with several area theaters include: Dracula (The Musical), Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Arms and the Man, Spoon River Anthology, The Birthday Party, Death of a Salesman, and The Trial of the Catonsville Nine.

Farther back in his chequered past he was a founding member of the Connecticut Guild of Puppetry and as part of a troupe whose name is too long to mention presented several wildly successful original shows including The Genie of Beans, The Battle of the Punch and Judies, Hamburgers For Happiness and the ever-popular Macbeth (the puppet version) which was much spookier than it sounds. A little bit more about Sam reveals that he lives in Norwalk with his lovely wife Sherrylee Dickinson, their flock of chickens, and varying numbers of cats and dogs and visiting children. His favorite offstage occupation is his continuing role, now entering its third season, as ‘Pop’ to his grandson Sawyer Young.
