Sherlock Holmes: The Detective & The Doctor
Dan Deal (Sherlock Holmes) is delighted to portray the famous detective in this new adaption artfully crafted for the stage by our incredibly gifted friend Kristen Brewer. He is thrilled to return to Servant Stage and once again work alongside of the droll genius of the charming Chris Wert. Dan has been privileged to be a part of the Lancaster theater community for the past 20 years. He has acted and directed for many of the local companies and is honored to serve a part of the production team at Sight and Sound Theaters. “I'm happy to be in the company of so many old and dear friends, including those of you joining us in the audience today. I greatly appreciate the heart behind Servant stage and Johnathan Bauer for giving us all an opportunity to be a part of this great company. As always, I'm honored to work closely with Bonnie and Wally two of my closest friends. I'm also deeply grateful to have known and worked with Stan Deen who has inspired and influenced our community more than we will ever know. God bless you all!”
Nicholas Keeton (Moriarty) is very thankful to Servant Stage for casting him in his first production with this company. This cast and director couldn't be more familiar to him for it was 12 years ago that he auditioned for Bonnie Bosso at Regent University. From there he was cast in the upcoming productions at Sight and Sound where he spent the next seven years doing a variety of original musicals along the side of some very talented folks like Johnathan Bauer, Chris Wert, Leslie Tally, and Andrew Zahn... just to name a familiar few. After Sight and Sound, Nick gained a variety of Theater and Film credits including, Moon over Buffalo and the award winning film Love Different. Lastly, Nicholas would like to thank his wife Danielle Keeton for supporting and sharing his love for the arts, as well as a loving gratitude to his daughter Sophia, who constantly reminds him of the power and magic of play and imagination.
Katherine Rundall (Mrs. Hudson, Mrs. Douglas) is excited to make her Servant Stage debut with this fine group of people. Her recent years have been spent on the production side; working at Sight & Sound Theatres.

Past performance experiences include the Countess in La Nozze di Figaro, Lady Macbeth in scenes from Verdi’s opera, Macbeth, the Ghost of Christmas Present in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and Amanda in The Glass Menagerie. Katherine loves the theater; the rehearsal process, the camaraderie among the team both on and off stage and the thrill one gets at that moment when the lights come up!
