Hamlet: Cancelled

Thank you to everyone who came out and auditioned for Hamlet! It was a treat to see each of you up there giving it your all. Unfortunately, due to low turn-out, the production has been cancelled. We thank everyone for their interest, and hope to work with you again soon.

We have several other projects that are in pre-production right now. If you are interested in getting involved, keep an eye on this page for open casting calls and other information.

See you soon!

Auditions for Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”

Ghosts, tragic love, insanity and intrigue – Shakespeare’s classic tragedy has it all. We’re taking this action-packed play one step further, and setting it in post-apocalyptic Denmark.

Congratulations to our cast, crew and fabulous parent volunteers on such a successful run of “Urinetown!” It was a pleasure working with you all, and we were so proud to see our actors blossom under the stage lights. Thank you also to our audience members who came out to support us (sometimes several nights in a row!)

Well, we’re off to catch our breath and start gearing up for the next show. Enjoy the summer, and see you in the fall!

“Urinetown: The Musical!” Opens Tomorrow!


    Tomorrow is the day! “Urinetown: The Musical” by Kotis and Hallman opens at 7:30 pm tomorrow night at the Mercury Theatre.

After 20 years of drought, the citizens of Everytown are forced to pay a fee every time they use the bathroom, or risk being sent away to the mysterious Urinetown. Longing for the privilege to pee for free, young Bobby sparks a revolution against the despotic UGC corporation. But social change brings unexpected consequences, and before long, everyone in town is swept into the fight. A dark comedy about love, ideals, betrayal and too much exposition. (Warning: This is not a happy musical.)



For tickets,  call 250-709-5239.
