Tarpon Arts is announcing auditions for Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville, A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. Performance dates for the production will be September 11-12 and 18-19 at the Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center. Baskerville is a comedy along the lines of Ludwig’s other shows like Lend Me a Tenor and Moon over Buffalo. Ludwig transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny 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 as our 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? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? We shall see how far from elementary the truth can be.
Those interested may attend Auditions in person on Sunday, June 13th at 6:00 PM at the Tarpon Springs Heritage Museum or submit a one minute monologue to the director, Jamie Bierchen, at email@example.com. It is preferred that the monologue be with a British accent (though not required). You may also submit a second monologue using a different character/voice if you wish. Submissions will be accepted until June 15.
