Sherlock Holmes, the world’s greatest consulting detective, takes on his most puzzling mystery ever. The legend of a ghostly, diabolical hound which roams the moors and stalks the Baskerville family has been whispered about for years.
But when Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead with enormous pawprints nearby, the case grabs the attention of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson. Can they solve the mystery of the phantom hound before another Baskerville falls victim to the legend?
The play is performed by 14 talented young actors, from ages 11 to 17. Sherlock Holmes is portrayed by Jake Green, a West High student and veteran KCT performer. Dr. John Watson is played by Cian Bell, who recently made his debut in KCT’s Knights of Camelot. Lucas Cunic plays Sir Henry Baskerville.

The play is adapted and directed by Zack Allen. This is his 17th full-length adaptation for KCT. Rose Bolton will design and build the costumes. The play’s stage manager is Gebrielle Eakle.
