Curses! The hounds are out and mystery is about. The MAC Theater is looking for five daring actors to take on multiple (nearly 40 – be brave!) roles in Ken Ludwig’s hilarious Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. Ludwig’s send up of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mystery, The Hound of the Baskervilles, turns it into a genius theatrical adventure of humor and horror. Roles will include the famous Sherlock Holmes, the elementary Watson, and several others both male and female. All roles are gender fluid. The action is fast paced, as are costume changes, and strong comedic reflexes are encouraged. Come one, come all, to the Marion Art Center at 80 Pleasant St., Marion.

Auditions will be cold readings from the script. Please email director Kate Fishman with questions or for an advance copy of the sides at Typically, rehearsals are three times a week and are scheduled with the actors’ conflicts considered. Actors must be available for the entire tech week, 7/30 through 8/2, and for all performance dates 8/4-6, 8/11-13, and 8/18-20.

This production will also need at least two stage techs to affect the fast scene changes, as well as set builders and a stage manager. If you’ve ever wanted to get involved in theater but weren’t ready to be on stage, there are plenty of opportunities for you at MAC Theater!
