AUDITIONS for a modern-day take on Sherlock Holmes tale The Hound Of The Baskervilles are taking place this month.

Chorley Little Theatre is staging the play – written and directed by Mark Jones – in June, with auditions for Holmes and Dr Watson being held at the theatre on January 20, at 2pm.

The auditions will involve an improvisation between the two characters, a method Mark plans to use in some scenes, as well as an audition piece online at

Further cast auditions will take place on March 3.

Mark said: “I want to cast Holmes and Watson early – ahead of others, as it will help me to complete the script knowing who will be playing the leads.”
