FDA's "Baskerville" Blends Mystery, Comedy

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's creation is coming to life for the second weekend in the Fairbanks Drama Association's production of "Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery."
Ken Ludwig's play adaptation of Doyle's "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is a mystery wrapped in a comedy with cast members playing multiple roles.
The only actors with only one part are Doctor Watson, and Holmes, himself - or, in this case, herself.
Holmes is played by FDA veteran Natalie Neubauer, and Doctor Watson is played by Nick Nappo.
The remaining three cast members have the task of portraying 26 other characters.
Director, Heath Robertson, told us about the collaboration between team members that will transport audiences to 221B Baker Street.

Heath Robertson; Director - Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery>>"We're doing a play on Sherlock Holmes, and there's a bunch of characters playing a bunch of people, and there's mystery and there's intrigue, and there's really cool lights, and there's awesome sounds, and there's a huge big collaborative team working on this one little performance art that is going to happen. And in my mind it is going to be mind blowing, but even if it's not, it was a fun experience."
