HAMLET ESP

Sponsored by Mary Kathryn Hodge and Charles Weiner

June 17 & 18

Montgomery Auditorium

Box Office opens at 6:00 pm

Seating begins at 6:30 pm

Performance begins at 7:00 pm

Conceived by the renowned director of the Dallas Theater Center, and successfully presented there under his direction, this imaginatively restructured version of Shakespeare's immortal play focuses the action in and through the mind of the central character, and employs three Hamlets to elucidate and define his fragmented, yet fascinating, personality.

Embodied here as a drama of what transpires in two worlds - an outer one of external events and an inner one of the mind. The action of the play centers on the second area, and the remarkably complex, exciting dialogue taking place within Hamlet's fertile brain.

 

The play then happens through Hamlet's eyes and inside his mind, with subtle flashbacks and transpositions to clarify and interpret his present actions. The result is a theatrically rich and emotionally vivid experience, which illuminates and enhances the greatness of the play, while finding new levels of meaning and pertinence within it

Sponsored The Chata Foundation

June 22 & 23

Fine Arts Recital Hall

Box Office opens at 6:00 pm

Seating begins at 6:30 pm

Performance begins at 7:00 pm

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

 

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.
