The set for the next Washington Community Theater show is being built this weekend.

The comedy Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery will be on the stage next month. Director Greg Wiley shares the plot of the show, “It follows the Hound of the Baskervilles by Conan Doyle, but the twist of this whole show is there are five actors who play 40 characters. And sometimes you see them change even right there on stage, so everything is moving quickly, people run off stage change character, run back on stage get their costumes put together and off they go. Someone dies at the beginning of the play just like any Sherlock Holmes mystery, and Sherlock has to figure it out and weave through all the mysterious characters that are in the area.”

A portion of the show’s ticket sales and raffle entries will be donated to the Washington County Domestic Violence Coalition. The show will be on stage March 16, 17, 23, and 24th at the Washington Community Center.
