1 FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18 & SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19: Just in time for Halloween, the Theatre Group of Millis will perform Ken Ludwigs Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes mystery/comedy.

Performance dates are Friday, Oct. 18 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Oct. 19 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

The worlds most famous detective and his trusty sidekick Watson face down their most notorious case of all in this madcap retelling of the ultimate Victorian whodunit from the mastermind of mayhem, Ken Ludwig.

A stunningly nimble cast of five takes on nearly 40 characters, coming on and off stage almost as quickly as the twists and turns of this complex plot, as Holmes and Watson race against time to crack the mystery of The Hound of the Baskervilles before a family curse dooms its newest heir.

The intrepid investigators search for the (anything but) elementary truth comes complete with a dizzying web of clues, outlandish accents, disguises and deceit. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can these heroes discover the truth in time? Can costume changes really be that fast?

Baskerville performs at Millis High School theater, 245 Plain St., Millis. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for seniors andstudents. Tickets may be purchased online at http://www.millistheatre.org or at the door.
