Ken Ludwig's Baskerville:
A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

Auditions: Saturday, September 18 @ 10:00 am
& Wednesday, September 29 @ 7:00 p.m.

Performances: January 8 - February 5, 2022, on the Mainstage

Auditioning ALL ROLES. Readings will be from the script [download sides here]. Callbacks to be determined. Please bring picture/resume. Performance stipend of $30/performance (for those 18 and older/post high school). Read-through will be held February 28, 2021, at 7:30.Rehearsals begin in November 2021.

Director: Christine Boehm
Stage Manager: Alissa Graber

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. The Baskerville heirs have been dispatched one by one and, to find their ingenious killer, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than forty characters. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time?

Seeking:
5 versatile, energetic, comedic actors.

Character Breakdown:

Holmes: A brooding, stubborn, skeptical, quick-witted genius with a wry sense of humor. The prototype for the modern mastermind detective, Holmes has little patience for imbecility for his mind moves far too fast.

Watson: A modest and intelligent partner to Holmes. Watson is a patient and sensitive observer, but his detecting capabilities are no match for the lightning-swift deductive reasoning of Holmes.

Actor 1, Actor 2, Actor 3: These (3) separate roles (in total) portray (36) different characters. Those interested in one of these three tracks must display versatility, strong comedic timing, and must be comfortable with accent work. Male, female, and non-identifying actors will be considered for all tracks.

Those auditioning will be asked to read material from the script. Please familiarize yourself with the text,  particularly those interested in the "Actor" tracks, to best understand the range of characterization necessary for each role.

Theatre Three is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion. As such, we encourage performers of all races and ethnicities, gender identities, sexualities, abilities, and ages to attend every audition. PLEASE NOTE: All actors must be fully vaccinated.

If you have any questions regarding the production or any of the tracks, please feel free to reach out to the director at [email protected].
