"Hamlet" -- Feb. 26 to March 8, 2015

A tragedy by William Shakespeare
Directed by John Davis

“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark!”

When the King of Denmark is murdered, young Prince Hamlet seeks revenge against his Uncle Claudius for the untimely death of his father!

A Weathervane Playhouse Young Actor Series production!

Background on the Play

From Wikipedia: "The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, often shortened to Hamlet, is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare at an uncertain date between 1599 and 1602. Set in the Kingdom of Denmark, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet is instructed to enact on his uncle Claudius. Claudius had murdered his own brother — Hamlet's father King Hamlet — and subsequently seized the throne, marrying his deceased brother's widow, Hamlet's mother Gertrude.

"Hamlet is among the most powerful and influential tragedies in English literature, with a story capable of "seemingly endless retelling and adaptation by others." The play seems to have been one of Shakespeare's most popular works during his lifetime and still ranks among his most-performed, topping the performance list of the Royal Shakespeare Company and its predecessors in Stratford-upon-Avon since 1879. It has inspired writers from Goethe and Dickens to Joyce and Murdoch, and has been described as the world's most filmed story after Cinderella.

"The play's structure and depth of characterization have inspired much critical scrutiny. One such example is the centuries-old debate about Hamlet's hesitation to kill his uncle, which some see as merely a plot device to prolong the action, but which others argue is a dramatization of the complex philosophical and ethical issues that surround cold-blooded murder, calculated revenge, and thwarted desire. More recently, psychoanalytic critics have examined Hamlet's unconscious desires, and feminist critics have re-evaluated and rehabilitated the often maligned characters of Ophelia and Gertrude."

"A Delicate Balance" -- Jan. 29 to Feb. 15, 2015

A dark comedy by Edward Albee
Directed by Craig Joseph

The celebrated and controversial American playwright Edward Albee won the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for this dark comedy.

A wealthy middle-aged couple, Agnes and Tobias, have their complacency shattered when Harry and Edna, their longtime friends, suddenly appear at their doorstep.

Claiming that an encroaching, nameless "fear" has forced them from their own home, these neighbors bring a firestorm of doubt, recrimination and ultimately solace — thus upsetting the "delicate balance" of Agnes and Tobias' household.

"Unnecessary Farce" -- April 23 to May 10, 2015

A comedy by Paul Slade Smith
Directed by Marc Moritz

Two cops. Three crooks. Eight Doors. Go!

Thus begins a wild, theatrical ride that The Fort Worth Star Telegram called “A laugh-till-you-weep comedy on a par with Noises Off.”

In an economy motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant. In the room next door, two undercover cops are supposed to catch the meeting on videotape. But there's some confusion as to who's occupying which room, who's watching the video, who's taken the money, who's hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes!
