Director: Christine BoehmStage Manager:
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,
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
