Mike Butler

It was 20 years ago that I first saw Sleuth performed at Centrestage and I said to myself that when I was in my mid-30’s, I would campaign to have this play put on again and I would tackle the role of Milo and here I am, age 35 and playing one of my dream roles! What a wonderful challenge this has been for Bryen and I! I can’t thank him enough for all the hard work and fun we’ve had and I couldn’t have asked for a better Andrew! Thanks also to Cherie, Theresa, Elva and Ernest for all their efforts in whipping us in to shape for this amazing show. I am so proud to have the chance to work with all of you. I am honoured to be the first actor to STEP ON TO the new stage and I look forward to tackling The Lighthouse and My Boy Jack this autumn. For now, come visit me at the Il Dolce Far Niente Espresso Bar in Wolfville or see if you can spot me on the Kentville and Wolfville Ghost Walks! One last thanks to my incredible partner Ian who is my greatest support and my biggest fan! Thanks for being the best part of my crazy busy life! I Love You Ian!
Now… let the games begin…

Bryen Stoddard

After a six-year hiatus, Bryen has decided to return to the stage to play one of his most challenging roles to date. What a grand experience Sleuth has been for Bryen and the part of Andrew Wyke ranks as one of his favourites alongside the roles of Jud in Oklahoma and the Sheriff in the Somewhat True Story of Robin Hood.
Bryen is honoured to share the stage with one of his favourite actors and the time he and Mike have spent with this play is something Bryen will always cherish. Thanks also to Cherie, Ernest and Elva for their hard work and he wants to thank Louis as well, for tackling such a difficult role.
You can see Bryen scare up the streets of Kentville and Windsor, as he is a part of the Valley Ghost Walks this season. Bryen lives in Kentville with his cats Simba and Sam.
Now, sit back and relax and get prepared to spend an evening of fun and games with Andrew and Milo!

Louis Friend

We are so fortunate to have Louis with us for the run of Sleuth. Casting happened so fast that it seemed like he just appeared before our eyes and it’s been a treat to watch his contribution to the play grow over the last few weeks. Sleuth is the only production Louis has ever been a part of as theatre is not really his thing. He would like to thank Bryen for helping him with his lines and Mike for helping him get into character. Sadly, Louis is too shy to come out for bows so he thanks the audiences for coming and hopes they enjoy the show!
