Put on Your Deerstalker Cap and Get Ready For Falcon’s BASKERVILLE!

Falcon Theatre will close out its 2018-19 season with Ken Ludwig’s affectionate and murderously funny homage to the world’s favorite fictional detective, BASKERVILLE: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. The production opens May 3, 2019.

If you’re a Holmes & Watson aficionado, you certainly know the story of Arthur Conan Doyle’s best-known novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles. A mysterious demon hound from hell has tormented the Baskerville family for generations. Multiple deaths have been blamed on the devil dog through the years. With the latest death of a Baskerville, it seems apparent that the hound has struck again. Or has it? Our capped and caped hero steps in to solve the puzzle. 

Now imagine the story transported to the stage where Holmes and Watson set about assembling the clues. But all the other roles (dozens of them, male and female) are played by an ensemble of three actors. Hilarious twists, turns, red herrings, lightning-fast costume changes, and antic fun follow. 

Just think of The Complete Works of Williams Shakespeare (abridged), and you’ve got the general idea. 

Falcon Theatre’s production is directed by Derek Snow and features Matt Dentino as Holmes, Alan Kootsher as Watson, as well as Nick DeNuzio, Dan Robertson, and Jordan Trovillion in the ensemble roles. 

Performances are at 8 PM on May 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, and 18, 2019. Ticket prices are $25 for adults and $15 for students with ID. Patrons enjoy a $5 discount for Thursday performances. Visit falcontheater.net for tickets.
