Sherlock Holmes The Panto

    by Nigel Currie


Pantomime Script: 'Sherlock Holmes The Panto' by Nigel Currie

In Dartmoor, Devon, Lord and Lady Babbacoombe live at Babbacoombe Manor with their daughter Rose and son Billy.  Billy is in charge of Babbacoombe Farm.  Rose is very fond of young Harry Holmes who is staying with the Babbacoombes and helping Billy to run the farm. 

Their idyllic life is being spoilt by a recent spate of burglaries and very strange and unexplained events.  Everything has started to go wrong since Professor Moriarty moved into Baskerville Hall.  He has been buying up property and land all over Dartmoor and his intention is to also get hold of Babbacoombe Manor. Inspector Morrison and the local police, Sergeant Morris and Constable Minor seem totally inept and don’t seem able to solve the crimes.  There is also a strange beast roaming Dartmoor, the hound of the Baskervilles, which is being blamed for killing all the farmers’ livestock.  

Harry Holmes announces that he has a famous uncle, Sherlock Holmes who he will try and get to come to Devon to help solve all the mysteries. To add to the chaos, the Babbacoombe’s are hosting this year’s big annual talent competition, 'Devon’s Got Talent'!  

Will Sherlock Holmes come to Devon to help….. If so will he be able to solve the crimes?  Why can’t the local police solve the crimes? What is it that is so strange about Inspector Morrison? What is Professor Moriarty really up to? Will Rose and Harry fall in love….. and who will win 'Devon’s Got Talent'?  All will become clear.
