THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES, a Sherlockian Spoof of Epic Proportions, Comes to Theatre Horizon for the Holidays

The laugh-out-loud comedy comes to Montgomery County for a limited engagement this November and December.

 

Three actors breathlessly play all 16 characters in this uproarious parody of the most celebrated Sherlock Holmes novel of all time.  THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES, the hit comic spoof of the classic Sherlock Holmes’ novel, comes to Norristown’s Theatre Horizon for a limited engagement from November 10 through December 8, 2019.

An ancient family curse, a desolate moor, a spectral hound, and a deranged killer on the loose. THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES is the most celebrated Holmes story of all, a masterpiece of mystery and suspense. And it’s scary – really, really, scary. The story of Sherlock Holmes’s investigation into the monstrous beast terrorizing the dark and dangerous moors has gripped people’s imaginations since it first appeared in print in 1901. This wild comedy, adapted for the stage by Steven Canny and John Nicholson, has taken all the familiar elements of the tale, and – through a collision of verbal slapstick, absurd scenarios and wonderfully ridiculous comic performances – has managed to create one of the most sublimely funny adaptations of a classic that you are ever likely to see.

 

Starring returning Theatre Horizon favorites Damon Bonetti, Steve Pacek, and Dave Johnson, THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES is directed by award-winning theatre artist Matt Pfeiffer.  Single tickets are now available by visiting theatrehorizon.org.

 

Theatre Horizon would like to extend a special thanks to both Lantern Theater Company, where the original concepts for this production were created and produced in 2015, and Delaware Theatre Company, where the concepts for this production were revisited and adjusted in September 2019.
