THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
adapted by Steven Canny & John Nicholson
directed by Matt Pfeiffer
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most beloved Sherlock Holmes story gets a makeover in an exhilarating collision of slapstick, absurdity, and silliness. Zany and fast-paced, The Hound of the Baskervilles offers farcical surprises and brilliant theatrical invention performed by a trio of endearing clowns and klutzes. Adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson for three actors, this barkingly hilarious spoof leaves audiences dying from laughter.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET
book by Colin Escott & Floyd Mutrux
original concept & direction by Floyd Mutrux
inspired by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, & Carl Perkins
directed by Matt Silva
This worldwide smash-hit musical is inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock ‘n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. In December 1956, these four young musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. Million Dollar Quartet brings that legendary night to life with a treasure trove of the greatest standards of the 1950s including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Walk the Line,” and “Hound Dog.” On this unforgettable night in rock and roll history, don’t miss your chance to be a fly on the wall.
