Meet the "Baskerville" Cast of Thousands (well, Dozens)

  • Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

  • directed by Richard Bostwick

Director Richard Bostwick has announced the cast for Gaslight Theater's third production of the season, Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery by Ken Ludwig. Baskerville opens Friday, August 18th at Hallowell City Hall.

Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as just five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters (thus our cast of dozens):


  • Sherlock Homes: Joe Drew of Gardiner
  • Dr. Watson: Larry Vinal of Augusta
  • Actor: Ben Whitestone of Winthrop
  • Actor: Andy Tolman of Readfield
  • Actress: Hanna Gow of Whitefield

Join the Fun

Gaslight is seeking both backstage and house management volunteers for Baskerville. Backstage staff get involved with the whole run of the show. Box office staff and ushers can volunteer for just one or multiple performances. Interested? Contact us.

About the Play

Sherlock Holmes is on the case. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir.

Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.
