Get your deerstalker cap on - the play's afoot! The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than forty characters. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time?

Comedic genius Ken Ludwig transforms Arthur Conan Doyle's classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Produced by Spencer Theatre Company, "Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery" will be presented during a limited three-day run at the Hoogland Center for the Arts on Friday, October 11 at 7:30pm, Saturday, October 12 at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, October 14 at 2:00pm.
