Orlando Shakespeare Theater, in partnership with UCF, will present a comedic spoof of The Hound of the Baskervilles from October 11 – November 19, 2017.
Steven Canny and John Nicholson’s play puts a hilarious spin on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles.
The story follows Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson as they journey to the English countryside to investigate the mysterious case of the Baskerville family. One by one the male heirs are dropping dead. But why? And who—or what—is responsible?
In this madcap spoof on the most famous detective of all time, a trio of actors play a dozen roles in a production that is a master class in funny and perfect for the Halloween season.
The Hound of the Baskervilles features some of Orlando Shakes’ audience favorites, including Steven Lane as Sherlock Holmes, Simon Needham as Dr. Watson, and Chris Crawford in the role of Sir Henry.
The production is directed by Jim Helsinger, with an artistic team including Scenic Designer Steve TenEyck, Lighting Designer Eric T. Haugen, Costume Designer Lisa Zinni, and Sound Designer Don Tindall.
Tickets are $25-$50 for performances Wednesdays to Saturdays at 7:30pm, and Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm. Preview performances (Oct 11 & 12) and Senior Matinees (Oct 18 & 25; Nov 1 & 8) tickets are $13-$25.
The Opening Night Party is Friday, October 13, and includes free light appetizers followed by a brief, informative discussion about the creative process with the director and members of the creative team. It is included with opening night tickets.
Patrons 34 years old and under can purchase $25 tickets for evening and weekend matinee performances during the third week (October 25-29, 2017) of the production. Call the Box Office at (407) 447-1700 ext. 1 or purchase online with code word: 25UNDER35
