I Hate Hamlet, Pawtucket

Friday-Sunday  The Community Players, the oldest community theater in Rhode Island, enjoys its 92nd season this year with this Shakespearean romp by Paul Rudnick.

There are, however, a couple of glitches: Andrew's series has been canceled, his girlfriend is still a virgin and he hates "Hamlet". It gets crazier from there. Jenks Auditorium, Division Street, Pawtucket, RI (across from McCoy Stadium). Friday and Saturday at 8 pm, Sunday matinee at 2 pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students through high school. Order tickets online, here.
