It was Elvis Presley at his most charismatic, and only a small group of fans had the privilege of being there... until now. With actor Casey Ryan as Elvis, the musical tribute show Elvis '68 relives a historic moment in music history, leather suit and all. This stage re-creation of the crooner's 1968 live comeback special explores a pivotal moment in the life and career of Elvis Presley. At the time, Elvis hadn't played a live show in seven years and his popularity was fading. But what was meant to be a safe Christmas concert turned into an intimate jam session, as Elvis and friends intercut rock 'n' roll hits with storytelling and audience interaction. Learn More
Hamlet is a philosophical study of life and death, laced with some of the most recognized of Shakespeare’s soliloquies including, Hamlet’s “To be or not to be…” Home for his father’s funeral, Hamlet learns that his father’s brother, Claudius, has taken over the kingship of Denmark by marrying the queen, his mother. When his late father’s ghost appears before him to tell how Claudius murdered him in cold blood, Hamlet develops a severe melancholy and sets out to avenge his father’s death. Hamlet requests that a troupe of players performs a play representing the crime of his uncle, whose violent reaction on seeing the play reveals his guilty conscience-exactly what Hamlet intended.
