Glen Arbor: The Glen Arbor Players will stage Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most popular Sherlock Holmes mystery; Hound of the Baskervilles on October 28-30. Troupe co-founder, Harriett Mittelberger, will direct a large and talented cast with 302 years of collective theatrical experience. The story was published in 1902 and is set largely on Dartmoor in Devon in England’s West Country. It tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound of supernatural origin. Detective Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson investigate the case. The plot incorporates five distinct plots as narrated by Dr. Watson, and the hidden plot discovered by Holmes.
The story has been adapted for many media as over 20 film and television versions of the Hound of the Baskervilles have been made including a video game based on the story line. The BBC rated the story as one of the 100 most influential novels of all time. Director Mittelberger said: “The story is terrifying and is a perfect performance for Haloween week.”
All performances are at the Glen Lake Church, 4902 W. Macfarlane, Glen Arbor at 7:30 pm. Attendance is free: goodwill contributions are welcomed. Refreshments will be served at intermission. Masks are encouraged but not mandated. For more information refer to www.GlenArborPlayers.org or call (231) 409-4421.
