Seattle Lutheran High School Drama is proud to present its spring production,
The Hound of the Baskervilles: A Comic Thriller Starring Shirley Holmes and Jennie Watson
Adapted by Kent R. Brown
Inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Novel
Sir Henry Baskerville arrives in England in the aftermath of his uncle Charles’ death, only to be threatened by the old family “curse”. He attempts to enlist the help of famous detective Sherlock Holmes, but when he arrives at Holmes’ apartment, he finds only his niece Shirley and her best friend Jennie Watson studying for their university exams. The two young women take the case and are soon swept into a web of intrigue and danger! Can they solve the case before Sir Henry becomes the next victim?

Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois
Theater is a unique form of artistic expression requiring contributions from many different disciplines in order to create a polished product. Being part of an activity requiring this type of collaboration teaches responsibility and the importance of teamwork while allowing students to enhance their skills. At Seattle Lutheran, we feel strongly that all students, regardless of experience level, should have the opportunity to be a part of the production. It’s here where students can take part in the enriching world of theater.
In addition to an elective drama class, Seattle Lutheran offers an after-school drama club that produces two full-length productions each year in November and April. Students are involved in all aspects of producing the shows including, but not limited to, acting, stage management, set construction, scenic painting, props, costume design, and construction and lighting. Actors are given parts through an audition process; all levels of experience are welcome and appreciated. Productions in the last five years have included one-act and full length plays in a variety of styles, including Broadway musicals, Shakespearian comedies, 1940’s radio plays, monologues, and titles from famous play writes such as Neil Simon and Alfred Uhry.
