Orpheus & Eurydice

By Judith Walsh White
Traveling Players Studio
July 5 @ 1 pm & July 26 @ 2 pm
Ages 6+ | 45 min

Orpheus plays the most beautiful music mortals or gods have ever heard. He and Eurydice, a nymph, fall madly in love. Their worlds come crashing down when Eurydice is bitten by a snake. Though he can produce powerful music, Orpheus is powerless to save her from the snake's venom and she dies. Heartbroken, Orpheus descends into the bowels of the Underworld, seeking his love once again. Can their love conquer death, or will Eurydice be left to waste away in the Underworld?

Hamlet

by William Shakespeare
Touring July 25 – July 31
Ages 10+ | 2 hours, plus 15 min intermission

Arguably Shakespeare’s greatest play, Hamlet centers on a reluctant hero returning home after his father's death and his mother's too-soon remarriage to his uncle.  The ghost of his father King Hamlet appears – revealing that he was murdered by the man who now wears his crown.  The Ghost commands Hamlet to revenge his murder by killing his uncle -- but can you trust a ghost?  Hamlet fakes madness while searching for the truth, surrounded by faithful friends (or friendly spies), an anguished court, and a troupe of oddly relevant actors.  This revenge tragedy brims with intrigue, trickery, heartache, and more than a little humor.

Learned Ladies

by Moliere
5 pm | Ages 6+ | 45 min

The illustrious poet Trissotan has come to stay with the lady Philamente and her family - and with him, he's brought all the good things in life: learning, knowledge, panache, and style.  So what if he's also a treacherous, self-serving scoundrel?  Will Philamente's long-suffering family unmask the fraud before it's too late?  Or will Trissotan get away with Philamente's money, savings - and even her daughter's hand in marriage?

A Midsummer Night's Dream

by William Shakespeare
7 pm | Ages 10+ | 75 min

Shakespeare’s tale of lovers who evade parental rule and city law by escaping into the forest, only to be transformed by mischievous fairies.  Reality and illusion interchange in the woods, as do love and hate, clarity and confusion.  As the tricks are reversed and the couples reunite, we delight in their wedding entertainment provided by a set of amateur actors.
