Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
September 14th - November 5th
From the award-winning mastermind of mayhem, Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor), comes a fast-paced comedy about everyone’s favorite detective solving his most notorious case. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must crack the mystery of The Hound of the Baskervilles before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters.
Baskerville has no nudity, profanity, or any strong adult content. Were it a movie, it would likely be rated PG.

This loving send-up lets the audience in on the joke from the beginning, breaking the fourth wall to hilarious effect over and over.
"Baskerville is another stellar production in a long string of compelling Cabaret crowd-pleasers — a howling good time!"
In “Baskerville,” Ken Ludwig’s hilarious pastiche of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Hound of the Baskervilles,” the game is afoot in a fast-paced, supremely satisfying and entertaining production at Oregon Cabaret Theatre that defies the limits of time and stage space.
This fast-paced mystery is a fun fall diversion and worth a trip to Ashland to enjoy.
On the prowl for a laugh-filled evening of rollicking mystery? The solution is easy. Join Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr. Watson in Baskerville.
The cute theatre in a previous church was intimate and well done. We loved our seat by the rail in the balcony. We opted to have dinner and we were so glad we did. It was probably the best meal we had in Ashland. We both had the steelhead. Salad through bread pudding dessert was outstanding. Straight forward food without the need to sauce or garlic.
The play was fun and well done! Those actors work so hard playing multiple characters! We would return.
""Baskerville" is rollicking good fun, and the staff left nothing overlooked. Great food plus a laugh out loud experience guarantee that I will be back, most likely with a season pass."
"Absolutely FABULOUS play...with unbelievably talented actors!! Thank you OCT!! Well done!"
"Watched it today. Fantastic job! Great staging! Acting is amazing! Must see!"
"It was a great show! Kudos to you all!"
"Went to see it Friday. Loved It!"
"So enjoyed this play! Outstanding talent."
"Well done show!"
"Just saw Baskerville. What fun!!!"
