Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery Is This Weekend At Chattanooga State

Monday, April 22, 2019

The Professional Actor Training Program at Chattanooga State presents Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  All performances are free and open to the public.  

Directed by Sherry Landrum, the play features graduating students of the Professional Actor Training Program. The cast includes Madison Gothard, Ben Levin, Mahaley Reed, Joseph Watts, and Taylor Williams. Maggie Williams is the stage manager. 

Review for Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery: 

Get your deerstalker cap on — the play’s afoot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure.

Sherlock Holmes is on the case. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir.

Watch as the intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters.

Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can the heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.

Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Performances are free to the public. The theatre is in the Humanities Building on the Chattanooga State campus, 4501 Amnicola Hwy.
