‘I Hate Hamlet’ onstage at WCU

Written by 

“I Hate Hamlet,” the story of an actor in career limbo, will hit the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday to Saturday, Oct. 5 to 8, in Western Carolina University’s Hoey Auditorium.

The show will kick off the 2011-12 University Theatre Mainstage season at WCU.

“I Hate Hamlet” is the story of young television star Andrew Rally, who finds his career derailed when his series is canceled. After relocating to New York, Rally is offered the role of Hamlet on stage. His life gets more complicated after meeting his roommate, the drunken ghost of John Barrymore, the legendary actor known for his groundbreaking portrayal of Hamlet. The New York Times described the play as “unapologetically silly and at times hilarious.”

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for faculty, staff and seniors and $10 for students or $7 if purchased in advance.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
