‘We’re quite excited to be presenting this mad-cap comedy adventure,” says Ken Hildebrandt, executive/artistic director of Gallery 7 Theatre.
“Not only does it celebrate the great master sleuth Sherlock Holmes, it celebrates the magic of theatre.”
Hildebrandt said the story will be told by five actors who will play up to 40 characters, sometimes within seconds of each other.
Ken Ludwig of Lend Me a Tenor fame has created this hilarious and fast-paced mystery-adventure based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic, The Hound of the Baskervilles.
The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, infamous sleuth Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir.
Watch as the intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit.
Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time?
Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery will be directed by designer and director Jeff Kiers.
Kiers designed the set for last year’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and is making his directorial debut with Gallery 7 Theatre with Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery.
