Suspense and laughter share the stage in this adaptation of the popular Sherlock Holmes tale, The Hound of the Baskervilles. Two British theater vets bring their witty sensibility to this classic Victorian whodunit about an attempted murder tied to the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound. The famous detective and his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson travel to the misty, moody moors of England's West Country where the Baskerville family patriarch has died under mysterious and chilling circumstances and his nephew and heir, Sir Henry, may be next. Is it the family curse or is it murder? Holmes is on the case! Learn More

This dance production combined the classic and comtemporary with a holiday flair that was magical. If you want Christmas Ballet but are weary of the Nutcracker, this is a wonderful alternative. The classic and contemporary music was matched beautifully with each dance. It was mesmerising to watch these excellent dancers make such athletic and artistic movements look effortless. I kept thinking how hard each of them has to work to give us that illusion. I highly recommend experiencing this performance.
