This summer’s ‘SPEC Presents” show is…
The Hamlet Thrill-ma-geddon
To sell out or not to sell out? Not really much of a question. After their budget is slashed, the drama club turns to Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy to raise cash, but it’s not tickets that are going to fund this year’s show: It’s sweet, sweet corporate sponsorship and mid-play commercial advertising. The sponsors demand changes in the stodgy old script, but who cares if Shakespeare never wrote musical numbers with back-up dancers or post-apocalyptic zombie battles? He’s dead and he can’t complain. Or sue. A lightning-quick, hilarious perversion of the greatest play in the English language.
Encourage your theatre-loving friends to come audition for this fun show at SPECTACULAR! We’ll also need stage crew and all are welcome!
