Fresh Breakfast, Anyone?

The troupe forgot to make reservations for their post-performance dinner.  It took Ming-Pow a very long time to find a restaurant in the Triangle that serves food late…but by then it was morning, so he decided to just go ahead and save a table for the rest of them while he enjoyed a fresh breakfast! Where did he go?

A sneak peek!

Tonight is opening night. That’s right, its the day of the show y’all!!
And just in case you weren’t motivated to come to Hamlet yet, here are some photos to inspire your attendance!

First, we find Polonius’ family – with both Ophelia (Tiffany Clark) and understudy Ophelia (Livian Kennedy). [See the family resemblance? Interesting how much Reynaldo looks like Laertes, isnt it?]



But really, the two girls are just besties.

And the love of their life, Hamlet finds himself struggling with his “mad” inner child.

Perhaps that is due to his strained relationship with his mother, Gertrude.

Ever since she married his uncle, Claudius, things havent been the same at home.

Claudius has been very busy since becoming King, and has taken it upon himself to educate the servants and the Doctor of Divinity on the way things ought to be…

…and then spends some extra time with his most loyal and entrusted servant, Osric.

With her status increasing around the castle, the Doctor follows Claudius’ lead and makes the servants of the castle follow her… directives.

When Hamlet returns from Wittenburg, Marcellus regales Hamlet with a fascinating story, but Horatio cannot help but to laugh…

Soon thereafter, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern arrive in town at the behest of the crown, and try their luck, convincing Hamlet to enjoy the Players.

But first, there is a Wittenburg reunion.

That done, the Players (the Tragedians of the Traveling Troupe) arrive and Hamlet spends some time asking a little favor, after giving the Player King his attention, of course.


The Players thoroughly entertain, but Scarlett and Ming-Pow are far more concerned about their relationship than anything else.

Alas, the play goes terribly wrong, and after a handful of “mad” moments, Hamlet (and Horatio) find themselves before the Gravedigger, and things go from bad to worse.

To see what happens next, come see the show!

Hamlet runs at 7:30pm on Thursday July 11, Saturday July 13, Tuesday July 16 (understudy show), and Thursday July 18. Hamlet matinee on Saturday July 20 at 1:00pm.

Tickets are on sale now – and with a small house, you should reserve your tickets now!

Final Dress!

Time just flies when you are trying to direct 2 shows in 7 weeks, lose more than a handful of actors (or 2 handfuls for that matter), and tempt fate with illness throughout the cast & crew… it seems like just last week we were starting rehearsal. Okay, maybe it seems like 2 weeks ago, but still.

Hyperbole aside, I have come to the point where I am conversing with the theatre gods on the regular (er, well, yes, you can call it “conversing”). But last night, I thanked them.

The number of people who have jumped in to assist with changes, work overnights (working in the space from 4pm until 7am), run errands, or simply come in with a positive attitude and a hug… well, the number isnt small.

I am honored to be a part of a project where so many people are willing to do more than show up and say words.
I look forward to others enjoying the project, and offering their kudos and encouragement to the cast & crew.
They certainly deserve it.

Is that a band?

The sound of Vicky’s tapping was haunting his dreams, so Ming-Pow decided to do a little retail therapy to clear his head. He took all the tavern monies with him, and the troupe is desperately looking for him!
