Ken Ludwig’s “Baskerville” — March 8, 9, 10, 15, 16

The cast and crew of Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville are hard at work preparing for the spring production. In this comedy thriller, author Ken 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. Their intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can the heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.

Mr. Sherlock Holmes is portrayed by Clay Ramsey with Antonius Watkins as Dr. Watson. The remaining characters, nearly 40 in all, are played by Krysta Koenigsknecht, Rory Miller and Jonathan

Portland Civic Players is excited once again to be collaborating with local organizations for this production. $5 from each ticket sold will be split between the Portland Community Fund and Ionia County Relay for Life.

“We are so excited to be able to bring this fun and entertaining show to our community and thrilled to be partnering with these two local organizations and help raise funds for very worthy causes. We have enjoyed such great support from this and surrounding communities over the years, and this collaboration is a great way to give back!” said Mary Teachout, PCP President. “We hope to see folks from communities countywide at the show!”

The play is being directed by Dr. Roger Miller, with Shelley Perry as assistant director. Performances are March 8, 9, 10, 15, and 16 at the Portland Community Theater, located at 231 Maple Street, Portland.
