Out of the darkness…

…the sound of a flute.

As many of you know, we had to cancel our remaining Hamlet performances.

While the cast and crew are mourning, we are excited to continue to bring Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead through the rest of the week.


We hope you will join us!


Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30pm – make your reservations now! Tonight we were 3 seats from sold out!!




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.

Ming-Pow finds a village!

Ming-Pow wanted to check out the tavern that the Traveling Trunk Troupe was playing at, and see what kind of ales they have on tap! He was last seen in a village in Raleigh…

The Doctor is in!

From the Good Doctor

Madness, murder and general misbehaving. What’s a poor priest to do? Arm herself with a sturdy cross, that’s what. Luckily this Doctor of Divinity has kin who is more than kind. Her sister crafted this talisman to help throw off the scent of what evil lurks.
