I Hate Hamlet - Small

I Hate Hamlet
July 20-22 & July 27-29.

Doors 7:00, Curtain 7:30 pm.

A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there’s one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore’s ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment. Don’t miss this summer theatre production at the GAC. By Paul Rudnick.

Directed by William Spicer.

Tickets: $15/adults, $12/kids(-12), snrs(60+), members.

8×10 Play Festival: Characters of the Gunnison Country
September 14-16

Doors 7:00, Curtain 7:30 pm.

The Gunnison Country is a land of harsh beauty. This is a place that takes a special kind of person to settle and inhabit. From the Ute Indians, to the first fur trappers and the first western mining settlements to the skiers and outdoor enthusiasts of recent times. Playwrights sought! Any script based on a character that lived or lives in the Gunnison Country – whose souls have been shaped by the landscape – is open for consideration. These short plays will be presented in eight – ten minute one acts, during the 8×10 Play Festival. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three playwrights who will be chosen by audience voting during the Festival. Visit gunnisonartscenter.org for complete play submission rules and details.
