Nurse Ratched is a character of such exquisite evil that she beat out Michael Corleone, Freddy Krueger, HAL 9000 and the Shark from Jaws in an AFI ranking of "100 Greatest Villains." Despite all her power, she meets her match in Randle P. McMurphy, the free-spirited patient who waltzes into her psych unit and threatens to upend her world in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Watching these two -- the strict authoritarian and the carefree rabble-rouser -- engage in a high-stakes game of control is one the chief pleasures of this Tony-winning stage adaptation of Ken Kesey's legendary novel (which also inspired the legendary, Oscar-winning movie). Stacy Holmes directs this tough, touching and tragic American classic now at the Attic Community Theater. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "Bo Foxworth gives a great performance, both classically poised and wickedly intuitive." <em>--Los Angeles Times</em>
- "Bo Foxworth's dramatic skills are so impressive he is completely convincing. His performance of our tragic conflicted hero conveys equal measures of regal majesty, sense of duty, and promise for revenge, with deep human suffering, despair, and feigned madness." <em>--Backstage West</em>
<p>Find yourself “Under the Stars” this summer at the beautiful 550-seat open-air Festival Amphitheatre as Shakespeare Orange County presents one of the Bard’s greatest tragedies, HAMLET, PRINCE OF DENMARK, directed by Thomas F. Bradac. Be prepared to be transported to the world of Elsinore and the classic characters that we all know so well—Hamlet, Ophelia, Claudius, Gertrude, and Polonius and others. Something is rotten in Denmark. Murder, corruption, and betrayal lurk in the shadows, resulting in the feigned insanity of a noble prince, the suicide of his beloved, and the fall of a great house. You’ll anxiously follow each twist and turn in a tale filled with madness that as a classic is extremely relevant to today’s world.</p> <p>This season’s production features an award winning cast. Bo Foxworth returns to the Festival Amphitheatre in the title role after appearing as Angelo in last season’s production of Measure for Measure, and as McDuff in SOC’s 2003 production of MacBeth. Foxworth is an accomplished stage actor with film and television credits that include Law and Order, 21 Jump Street, Skin Deep, and Summer Dreams, the Story of the Beach Boys. Hamlet also features veteran actor and director Carl Reggiardo as Claudius, eleven-year Alabama Shakespeare Festival alum Evelyn Carol Case as Gertrude, and the award-winning Michael Nehring as Polonius. </p> Bring a picnic, take in the authentic Elizabethan pre-show "on the green," and prepare yourself for an evening of award-winning theatre. Plenty of free parking is availabl. Picnic areas and light refreshments are available.
