Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville:
A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
- March 10-29, 2015

Visit the Baskerville website

Sherlock Holmes is on the case. Comedic genius Ken Ludwig transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Under the direction of Amanda Dehnert, five transformable actors will bring this spine-tingling Victorian whodunit to life with sheer inventiveness and enormous heart.

The Peking Acrobats - March 31, 2015
Hoop plate spinning! Bowl balancing! Pole Climbing! This troupe of elite gymnasts, cyclists, jugglers, acrobats, and tumblers continues to leave family audiences spellbound with their daring demonstrations of strength, balance, agility, grace, and unique artistry. Accompanied by live music, they transform 2000-year-old traditions into a modern kaleidoscope of movement, defying laws of body mechanics and physics.

Hiromi - March 15, 2015
It’s hard to believe that Hiromi hasn’t been to McCarter in a decade. If there’s one phrase to describe her, its high voltage, incendiary, and brazenly virtuosic. Her style is instantly recognizable, recalling nothing so much as the legendary Art Tatum (one of her idols). A superstar in her native Japan, Hiromi is to the piano what a Hendrix and Van Halen are to the guitar, incorporating R&B, rock, and avant-garde, filled with hairpin turns, tempo shifts, and surprising turns.

David Sedaris - April 6, 2015
David Sedaris’ annual visit has become a McCarter tradition—and one with never an unsold seat! It seems almost unnecessary to remind you at this point that this “rock star of writers” is a commentator on PRI’s This American Life, a frequent contributor to The New Yorker, and a prolific author whose shelf of best-sellers have become New York Times best sellers, and collectively have sold seven million copies. Do we need to add that he may just be the funniest man alive?

All AFTER SCHOOL classes for today (March 5) have been canceled due to the winter storm.  You can contact Lily Junker at with any questions.
