Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

Presented by Dramatic Productions as part of their Dramatic Difference Initiative to give back to Community organisations and charities. For each ticket sold to the show Dramatic Productions give back 10% to the chosen Charities. This initiative is supported with matched donations by the incredible Team from Masonicare. From the Founder of Dramatic Productions Mr Richard Block.

“I needed to find a new way to attract people to my shows. I needed to find a new way to reach the local community and engage with them. This led to me trialing two new concepts – Pay It Forward tickets and Charity Nights.

I am incredibly proud of these steps we took to give back to the community. Not only do charities gain financially from Dramatic Productions shows but we have been able to showcase the amazing work they each do through social media. Our casts also get the satisfaction of knowing that their hard work provides benefits long after the show is over and as a bonus, during the show, they get the chance to show off their talents to even more people.

This year’s innovation of a Money Back Guarantee has taken many by surprise. But it is a testament to the incredible standard that our local performers reach. And the confidence I have that once people see what their fellow Canberrans are capable of, they will not only be happy to support them, they won’t be able to wait to see what they do next!
The journey isn’t over and I have even more plans for social engagement and giving to the community. The charities I’ve had the honour of visiting have shown me that there is much more good we can do, even if it’s just through our own small part of the arts.

I’m looking forward to what comes next. Please join me in being a part of this Dramatic Difference we are striving to make!”

Dainere’s Rainbow are just so extremely humbled and honoured to have been selected to be part of this truly incredible initiative and we are proud to work alongside the Dramatic Productions Team and assist them in any way.

The show on 20th April supported Dainere’s Rainbow and had a very responsive and marvellous audience attend on the evening. They would all agree that Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery was indeed filled with fun. Laughs, twists, turns and intrigue, it was an absolutely ingenious and hilarious adaptation of one of Sherlock Holmes’s most classic stories. The cast were just astonishing and so amazingly adaptable and talented.

The next production by this phenomenal company will be The Producers with the wonderful Daryl Somers cast as Max Bialystock (Hey Hey It’s Saturday) and the show is directed by the exceptional Rachel Beck (Hey Dad) and is certainly a show not to miss this October 11th to 26th.
