The Repertory East Playhouse will return to its Main Stage Season on Friday, Sept. 18, at 8 p.m. with the chilling crime drama "Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of the Baskervilles," adapted by F. Andrew Leslie, from the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Sponsored by RSVP Catering, Be a Part of The 81 at the Opening Night Wine Reception Sponsored by Engelmann Cellars at 7 p.m. with curtain at 8 p.m.

Perhaps the most famous and popular of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries this gripping tale deals with the curse of the Baskerville family-and the fiendish killer-hound which stalks its members. As the action begins Sir Charles Baskerville has died under mysterious circumstances, and his nephew and heir, the young Sir Henry, has been threatened even before his arrival at Baskerville Hall.

Enlisting the aid of Sherlock Holmes he sets out for his ancestral home on the Devon moor in the company of Dr. Watson, Holmes' trusted colleague, a journey which brings him to danger, mystery and a series of events which build steadily in menace and suspense.

Hard pressed to protect his charge, and to fathom the strange mishaps which beset him, Dr. Watson is much relieved when Holmes himself appears-to trap the diabolical killer who stalks Sir Henry and to unravel the fascinating mystery which accounts for his evil actions.

The REP is now serving wine and beer at the REP Wine Bar. Enjoy a glass of Engelmann Cellars Summer Quartet, VOV Zin or Gravel Pit Syrah. Not a wine person, enjoy an ice cold beer before, during, and after the show. Please drink responsibly.

Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of the Baskervilles opens Friday September 18 and will run through October 17. Show times are Friday and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. 

The REP is located at 24266 Main Street Newhall 91321.

The REP will host post show discussions immediately following each Sunday performance. Join the cast and crew for an intimate discussion about the process of creating live theatre.

"The Hound of the Baskervilles" stars Michael Levine in the iconic role of Sherlock Holmes with a supporting cast to include REP newcomers, Carolyn Morse, Jamie Callahan, Kyle Kulish, Todd Larsen and Alysan Marie, along with REP favorites Amber Van Loon, Donna Marie Sergi and Janice and BD Christensen.
