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 light opera has : a simple but very clever script, marvelous music that has lived on in popularity for more than a century, an excellent live orchestra, brilliant and vibrant costumes , an enormous well-rehearsed ensemble, lead vocals that fill the room and stir an audience of mixed ages and tops it off with well-rehearsed comedic timing and body-acting . A remarkable entertainment experience. Lighting is perfect for a traveling show in different locations. After a performance, they rush out to the lobby to greet , thank and pose for photos ... with only 3 hours between shows ! Super - titles above stage for those less familiar with lyrics. Lamplighters continue to glow with passion, power and personality.
