The Hound of Baskervilles

From the Classic Thriller of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Rehearsals Begin: July 17, 2017 Performs: Aug. 24 – Oct. 15, 2017
Director: J. J. Cobb
Holmes’ most spine chilling mystery is set in the West Country of England, and filled with suspense, humor, and terror. Sir Henry is heir to the vast Baskerville fortune, a legacy that comes with a family curse: death at the fangs of a horror that prowls the moor. Only Holmes can stop the beast. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall and the hound terrifies the countryside, the sleuthing begins and suspicion falls on sinister servants, butterfly collectors, ladies in distress, and escaped convicts. Who wrote the letter that summoned the hound? Is Sir Henry’s romance with the lovely Kathy doomed? Is the supernatural at work? Rated PG.
LADY AGATHA MORTIMER (Female 25-60) – A medical doctor, ample, “tweedy”, forceful.
PERKINS (Female 16-25) – A young maid, a bit jumpy but likable.
WATSON (Male 25 – 55) – Very devoted to Holmes. Although he is very observant, he lacks Holmes’ imagination and analytical ability. Should have good comic timing.
SHERLOCK (Male 25 – 55) – A famed private investigator interested in bizarre cases, a master of detection and brilliant sleuth. Straightforward but charming.
MRS. BARRYMORE (Female 40-70s) – The housekeeper. Reminds Holmes of an axe murderess.
SIR HENRY (Male 20-40) – An attractive young nobleman, heir to a fortune and a curse.
BARRYMORE (Male 45-70s) – A butler, slightly sinister, but capable.
KATHY STAPLETON (Female 18-35) – An attractive young woman, vital, alert and altogether captivating.
JACK (Male 18-30) Kathy’s brother, given to emotional outbursts, overly protective, and possibly nutty – a zoologist in the making.
LAURA LYONS (Female 18-30) – A capable young woman with a dangerous secret.
