I Hate Hamlet
Nov. 2 - 5, 2006

I Hate Hamlet


MARIANNA—The Chipola College production of “I Hate Hamlet,” opens a four-day run Thursday, Nov. 2.
             Tickets—$7 for adults and $5 for students—are available weekdays in the college Business Office from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Chipola students and employees get one free ticket.
             For the courtesy of theatre patrons, no one under age 5 will be admitted. Recommended age for the subject matter is 13.
            Chipola Theater director Charles Sirmon cast local actors in the following roles: Brittany Holmes as Felicia Dantine, Kevin Russell as Andrew Rally, Shannon Grice as Deirdre McDavey, Danuta Jacob as Lillian Troy, Mike Milton as John Barrymore and Chris Calton as Gary Peter Lefkowitz. Rowdy Wilbur will serve as the stage manager for the show.      
             The Paul Rudnick comedy tells the story of a young, successful television actor who relocates to New York, where he rents a gothic apartment.  With his career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there’s one problem: he hates Hamlet. 
             To add to his troubles, Andrew’s series has been cancelled; and his girlfriend is clinging to her virtue with unyielding conviction.
             When Andrew’s agent visits him, she reminisces about her brief romance with John Barrymore many years ago, prompting a séance that summons Barrymore’s ghost.  The action becomes more hilarious with the entrance of Andrew’s deal-making friend from LA, spouting the laid-back hype of the Coast and offering Andrew a fabulous new TV deal worth millions.
             The laughs are nonstop as Andrew wrestles with his conscience, Barrymore, his sword, and the fact that he fails as Hamlet in Central Park.               
            For ticket information, call 850-718-2220.
