Michael Dunn as Sherlock Holmes
Shakespeare Fellowship President Earl Showerman reports on an authorship event for high school students at Concordia University in Portland, Oregon:
On February 25th, Concordia University in Portland sponsored a Shakespeare authorship program for nearly 200 students the Fort Vancouver High School in Vancouver Washington. Students from the New Urban High School in Milwaukee, OR also attended. Jason Moore, a graduate of Concordia University who teaches English in the Vancouver school system, lead off the program by encouraging the students to ask "the big questions", and described his own revelation regarding the Shakespeare authorship mystery. James Gaynor, a sophomore at Concordia and assistant to Professor Dan Wright at the SARC, presented arguments focused on the cultivation of creative genius. Professor Wright then addressed the students briefly before Michael Dunn presented his highly amusing Sherlock Holmes Shakespeare Mystery show. The students responded with enthusiasm and there was an animated question and answer period following the program.
