I Hate Hamlet

Comedy-TragedyThe Blue Ridge Community Theater is dedicated to bringing quality theater to Blue Ridge, Georgia. The play that is being performed through September 5, 2010 is the wonderfully funny I Hate Hamlet by Paul Rudnick.

The story is about a man who seemingly has it all – fame, a beautiful girlfriend, a great apartment in New York, a dedicated agent, and a part playing Hamlet in Central Park. The only problem is, in reality, his life is not as good as it appears. He is visited by a couple of ghosts and his life is no longer his own. The laughs go on and on as he deals with the situations in his life.

Show times are 7:30 PM on Friday and Saturday, 2 PM matinee on Sunday. Tickets are $15 per seat for adults. 10% off tickets prices for seniors, half off tickets for students (subject to availability) all day Sunday and 30 minutes before showtimes on Friday and Saturday. For more information and details about this play and other events at the Blue Ridge Community Theater, contact the Box Office at 706-632-9223.
