The world's greatest detective is not who people think he was. In fact he was not a he at all. Ms. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Joanna Watson must solve the mystery of a generations' old curse that dooms each male in the Baskerville family to be hunted by a demon dog. Can Holmes and Watson discover the truth before the Hound claims the life of the final heir to the Baskerville name?
Audience and actors meet at the Chautauqua Picnic Shelter and take a moderate hike on the Enchanted Mesa Trail while scenes from the play are performed along the way. Approximate length of the hike is two miles with an elevation gain of 400 feet.
Audience members are encouraged to bring camping chairs and/or blankets and mats to sit on while watching the scenes. Water, sunscreen and hats are suggested and comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing are strongly encouraged. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held under the Picnic Shelter.
Buy early! Each hike is capped at low numbers and tends to sell out in advance. Recommended for ages six (6) and older.
