Madcap Comedy-Adventure Has Them Roaring With Laughter At Scripps Ranch Theatre!Scripps Ranch Theatre, located on the campus of Alliant Int'l University in Scripps Ranch opened their hysterical production of Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery, the Tony Awarding winning play by Ken Ludwig. The production continues on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm through April 22nd.

Get your deerstalker cap on - the play's afot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig turns Arthur Conan Doyle's classic The Hound of the Baskervilles on its head and transforms it through theatrical inventiveness into a madcap comedy-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 the intrepid investigators try to 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? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.

Director, Charles Peters, has assembled a fantastic cast of San Diego performers including Robin Thompson, Michael Lundy, Russell Clements, Bob Himlin and Michelle Marie Trester.

BASKERVILLE: A SHERLOCK HOLMES MYSTERY runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays continues through April 22nd. To reserve seats, contact the box office at 858-578-7728 or visit Individual tickets are $34 with discounts available for Seniors, Military and Students.
