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

We love the Sippy Cups! This is our 4th concert and my daughter asked today when we can go again. This is entertaining for all of us. We have purchased all their CDs and really enjoy listening to them. If you haven't gone - go to a concert! You'll have a great experience. Everything is very interactive better than an adult rock concert!
When The Sippy Cups began writing the songs that would become their new album, The Time Machine, the band noticed that they all seemed to be about growing up and changing. Even the music was becoming a bit more sophisticated and edgy. It became apparent to them that both their own children, and their audience, had grown up some since their last album, and the themes of these new songs unwittingly reflected that process.
As the songs took shape, the overriding concept that became the album's title also began to take shape. After all, what kid doesn't love the idea of a time machine? But in the case of The Sippy Cups, the time machine they are referring to is not some tricked-out Delorean, but our own bodies, which are constantly growing and changing and moving us through time. They wanted to convey to children and parents how magical that journey through time can be, and how precious the milestones are along the way.
Sippy Rudy wrote "My Loose Tooth" about his daughter Riley's experience with wiggling a loose tooth around in her mouth. Sippy Alison brought in a song called "One Day Soon," about watching her son Henry learn to swim and read. Sippy Paul contributed "Seven is the new Fourteen," introducing math fun for ages 3 to 93. Rounding out The Time Machine are songs like the rousing "Look," which celebrates the ancestors who made us who we are; "My Angry Voice," one for the parents to learn from; "Awake," a slow- building, ethereal paean to the parallels between the natural world and our world; and "Hailstone Man," a rocking number about a WWII pilot who jumps out of a failing plane into a hailstorm, and lives to tell the tale. Character favorites such as Major Minor, Super Guy and Hair Professor round out the journey.
