There might not be scary ghost stories this holiday season at Theatrical Outfit, but the Downtown Atlanta theatre is bringing some mystery to local audiences.

Theatrical Outfit is continuing its return to the stage this holiday season with Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. “5 Actors. 40+ Roles. 1000s Of Laughs For The Entire Family,” Baskerville will run at Balzer Theater at Herren’s from November 17 – December 19, 2021.

In the words of the theatre…

Baskerville is equal parts sensational mystery and hilarious comedy, and will be an absolute theatrical treat for the whole family. With five actors playing over forty characters (complete with amazing physicality and impossible costume changes) the show promises glorious mayhem, and showcases the talents of an amazing cast of Atlantan actors.  We want to fill the Balzer theatre with laughter and surprise & bring our community together in celebration after a tough couple of years.”
