CPAC season opens with Hound of the Baskervilles
Cloverdale Performing Arts Center’s 2013 season of live stage plays begins at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22 when the curtain goes up on “Hound of the Baskervilles” by Tim Kelly, from the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The most famous of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries, this gripping tale deals with the curse of the Baskerville family and the fiendish killer hound which stalks its members. Sir Charles Baskerville has died under mysterious circumstances and his nephew and heir, the young Sir Henry, has been threatened even before his arrival at Baskerville Hall.
Enlisting the aid of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Henry sets out for his ancestral home in the company of Dr. Watson, Holmes’ trusted colleague. But Dr. Watson is much relieved when Holmes himself arrives to trap the diabolical killer and unravel the fascinating mystery which accounts for his evil actions.
Additional performances will take place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 22, and Friday and Saturday, March 1 and 2, with two Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. on Feb. 23 and March 3.
Tickets are $18 and can be purchased either online or at The Mail Center, 207-A N. Cloverdale Blvd. during regular business hours.
