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 thank you for your understanding, and hope to see you at Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead!

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.
IMG_5782

Perhaps that is due to his strained relationship with his mother, Gertrude.
IMG_5714

Ever since she married his uncle, Claudius, things havent been the same at home.
IMG_5701

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…
IMG_5839

…and then spends some extra time with his most loyal and entrusted servant, Osric.
IMG_5724

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…
IMG_5747

Soon thereafter, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern arrive in town at the behest of the crown, and try their luck, convincing Hamlet to enjoy the Players.
IMG_5795

But first, there is a Wittenburg reunion.
IMG_5846

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.
IMG_5767

IMG_5853

The Players thoroughly entertain, but Scarlett and Ming-Pow are far more concerned about their relationship than anything else.
IMG_5781

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.
IMG_5803

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.

Poor Scarlett!

Scarlett was so angry at Ming-Pow for putting the skirt on again, he felt it was safer to disappear for a bit… he found a little gem of a place with healthy food, lots of restaurants to choose from, fountains, and a fun little park. Help us get him back – its getting close to show time!

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…
