Play - The Bishop McNamara Theatre Program is proud to present this year’s fall show, Barbecuing Hamlet. Wouldn't it be great fun to direct William Shakespeare's Hamlet? That was what Margo Daley always thought...until she is hired to do just that by the Peaceful Glen Memorial Players in their theater, a renovated funeral home. They DO have a couple of conditions, however. Margo has to make the play a melodrama, so the audience will know when to throw the popcorn. And they can't be too loud because the lady who lives under the theater bangs her cane on the stage. All kinds of eccentric characters come out of the woodwork in this riotous tribute to life on the community theater stage. The show will be this Friday and Saturday at 7:00 pm, and Sunday at 2:00 pm, in the Black Box Theatre. Tickets are $5 each and are available in the main office at lunch or after school and at the door. Seating is limited, so we recommend buying your tickets in advance.   House points will be given for attendance.
