I Hate Hamlet
Sep 20 @ 7:30 pm
I Hate Hamlet @ New Bern Civic Theatre | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

Andrew Rally seems to have it all: celebrity and acclaim from his starring role in a hit television series; a rich, beautiful girlfriend; a glamorous, devoted agent; the perfect New York apartment; and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. But there is trouble in paradise when his TV series is cancelled and Andrew really doesn’t want to play Hamlet. When Andrew]s agent visits him, she reminisces about her brief romance with John Barrymore many years ago, in Andrew’s apartment. This prompts a sèance to summon his ghost. From the moment Barrymore returns, dressed in high Shakespearean garb, Andrew’s life is no longer his own. Barrymore, fortified by champagne and ago , presses Andrew to accept the part and fulfill his actor’s destiny. The laughs are nonstop as Andrew wrestles with his conscience, Barrymore, his sword, and the fact that he fails as Hamlet in Central Park.

The iconic duo behind the music of the Beatles, Paul McCartney and John Lennon’s songwriting partnership began in 1957 when the pair met at a Church event. The two immediately struck up a partnership that would form the basis of the world’s most iconic band, and produce more than 180 songs. Since the inception of their partnership the pair agreed that all songs written by them would feature both names, and though later disputes would see the alteration of the order and crediting of certain songs, they remain one of the most influential songwriters of the 20th century. According the Guinness Book of World Records, “Yesterday” is the most covered song of all time. Hits include “Hey Jude”, “Across the Universe”, “Yellow Submarine”, “Here Comes the Sun”, “Blackbird”, and “Wait.”

Honour, The Musical @ Orringer Auditorium | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

North Carolina’s most notorious affair of honor – the Stanly-Spaight Duel.  A young legislator goads an older statesman in a heated political contest.  The older man insults the younger.  All in public.  In newsprint.  Add the story of Sarah Rice, favored slave of the Spaights, who had a son by John Stanly.  Combine it with the knowledge and wit of writer Bill Hand and the music of Simon Spalding and you have Honour, The Musical.

This historic tale will be brought to life through original dialogue and music, as the full-length play sweeps you from the signing of the Constitution to the dispute that would lead these bitter rivals to a fight to the death on the field of honor.
