‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’: Sherlock Holmes’ most spine-chilling mystery is placed in a modern setting in this version — with suspense, humor and terror. Sir Henry is heir to the vast Baskerville fortune, a legacy that comes with a family curse: death at the fangs of a horror that prowls the moor. Only Holmes can stop the beast. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall and the hound terrifies the countryside, the sleuthing begins and suspicion falls on sinister servants, butterfly collectors, ladies in distress, and escaped convicts. Who wrote the letter that summoned the hound? Is Sir Henry’s romance with the lovely Kathy doomed? Is the supernatural at work? Written by Tim Kelly, based on the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Directed by Tim Coatney. Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2 p.m. Sundays, Feb. 25-March 13. Masks must be worn by all patrons at all times while in the theatre.

‘Spotlight on Bobby Darin’: Camelot will open its 2022 season with an Exclusive Spotlight presentation on the American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, impressionist and actor Bobby Darin, whose combination of brashness, good looks and talent made him one of the nation’s leading singers of popular songs. He performed jazz, pop, rock and roll, folk, swing and country music. Darin started his career as a songwriter for Connie Francis and recorded his first million-selling single, “Splish Splash” in 1958. Camelot’s tribute to Bobby Darin will include songs such as “Beyond the Sea,” “Dream Lover,” “Splish Splash,” “Mack the Knife,” “Things,” “Clementine,” “I Ain’t Sharin’ Sharon” and many more.

‘Camelot’: An idealistic young King Arthur hopes to create a kingdom built on honor and dignity, embodied by his Knights of The Round Table. His ideals, however, are tested when his lovely queen falls in love with a young Knight, and the fate of the kingdom hangs in the balance. Camelot Theatre takes the classic story of King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, and the Knights of Round Table and updates the locale to a metal foundry where the story is told from the point of view of the blue-collar workers — a story of kindness, courage, and community. This contemporary production has all the Lerner and Loewe music gems that Camelot the musical is known for, including, “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “I Loved You Once in Silence,” “The Lusty Month of May,” and of course, “Camelot.” Performances are scheduled for 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, Feb. 17-March 13. Tickets are $20-$38. See website for special performances, including a reduced rate preview performance.

‘Moon Over Buffalo’: George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s, are playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York, with five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately, for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing. Performances are set for 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, Mondays and select Wednesdays, and 1 p.m. Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, Feb. 10-April 10. Were it a movie, “Moon Over Buffalo” would be Rated PG, with some coarse humor, alcohol use and adult situations. Tickets are $43, $39 or $29.
