Gary CLARK (Gillette)

Gary Clark ­ as William Hooker Gillette (July 24, 1853 – April 29, 1937) I’ve enjoyed acting with the arts theatre for just over 14 years and enjoyed a variety of roles form from villain to benighted love interest, and back again, but for every actor there is one role they would love to play and for me that’s always been Sherlock Holmes. So now I get to be the legendary detective and the actor who became synonymous with his stage presence; (William Gillette)! I’m overjoyed and you’re in for grand mystery.
So ease into your chairs, forget the impossible, embrace the improbable engage your intellect, and solve the mystery for the Game’s Afoot 


I have always wanted to act ever since I saw a theatre show in high school; after that I knew I wanted to do this forever. I was very lucky to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts Los Angeles and after graduation I got to travel around a bit doing shows in LA, Perth (which is my home town) and New Zealand. After moving from Perth to Sydney to chase the dream I got another opportunity to perform at the Cronulla Arts Theatre. Getting to meet Tom and the Cronulla family reminded me how the arts is a truly amazing space to be in. This will be my second show with the Cronulla Arts theatre and I’m very excited to work with Tom, the cast and crew of the Cronulla Arts Theatre once again!  Break a Leg People!
