Virginia Stage Company Teams with Local Businesses for “Seven Days of Mystery”
In anticipation of their upcoming production of The Hound of the Baskervilles, Virginia Stage Company challenges community members to channel their inner Sherlock Holmes with a “Seven Days of Mystery” scavenger hunt in Downtown, Norfolk. Starting Wednesday, February 14, a poster will be placed in a different business everyday for seven consecutive days.
Clues will be posted on Virginia Stage Company’s social media sites every morning. Once the poster is found, participants will rush to take a picture and tag both Virginia Stage Company and the business for a chance to win free tickets to Opening Night, Saturday February 24, and other prizes.
Participating businesses include the new Waterside District and Slover Library.
About Virginia Stage Company’s production of The Hound of the Baskervilles
Three actors play more than 20 characters in this hilarious spoof of beastly proportions. Directed by Mark Shanahan, this production is “a sublimely funny adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic,” which lovers of the Watson and Holmes duo will enjoy. A fast-paced comedic ride, filled with verbal and visual ingenuity, The Hound of the Baskervilles follows the dynamic pair of Watson and Holmes as they debunk a family ‘curse.’ Following the original storyline of Doyle’s classic tale, this play is filled with twists and turns that transform the plot into a modern day satire. Authors Steven Canny and John Nicholson adapted this classic British story expressly for laughs.
The Hound of the Baskervilles begins previews on February 21 with an official opening night on Saturday, February 24 and closes March 11. Tickets for each performance range between $20 – $55 with discounts for groups, students, and the military. For tickets, click HERE.
