Just three to take the stage for slimline version of Sherlock classic
A THEATRE group is taking a Sherlock Holmes classic and giving it a humorous twist for its next performance.
A slimmed down cast from Macclesfield Amateur Dramatics Society (MADS) will perform Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles, with just three actors telling the tale with nothing more than a few props.
Cameron Chandler, who is directing the play, said: “The trio play all the roles, both male and female, using nothing more than a few props and sheer ingenuity.
“This play keeps getting funnier each time we rehearse it.
“The cast have such great energy and real chemistry with each other. We’re all having a blast and it really shows.”
Holmes will be played by Peter Munro, with Logan Westbrook as his sidekick Dr Watson and Matthew Coath as various Baskerville characters.
The show runs from Monday, February 29, to Saturday, March 5, at the Little Theatre on Lord Street.
