The Stormy Petrels have been invited to attend opening night of Ken Ludwig’s fast-paced, farcical adventure play “Baskerville – A Sherlock Holmes Mystery”
“Five actors play over 40 comical characters, filling the stage with suspects, allies and heirs in this zany whodunit based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic. When the wealthy Henry Baskerville is threatened by the fable of a bloodthirsty hound on the moors, Holmes and Watson are on the case to sniff out the culprit.”
The Stanley Theatre is located at South Granville/12th – Wednesday, September 14th show begins at 7:30
We will meet for a pre-show dinner at Barney’s – 2975 South Granville/14th at 6:00 pm
Petrels attending this event will have sent an RSVP to Fran
