Acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Jeffrey Hatcher -- writer of Casanova with Heath Ledger and The Duchess with Keira Knightley -- now presents Hamlet with ... Jeffrey Hatcher. That's right, Hatcher himself takes the stage to tell the tale of this particularly tragic Dane in Jeffrey Hatcher's Hamlet, a solo show at the Illusion Theater. Back when he was 10 years old, Hatcher adapted, directed and performed a production of Hamlet starring his fifth-grade classmates. The first show sold out, as did the second and a career was born in humble Steubenville, Ohio. Now, decades later, the successful writer ruminates on his early start on the stage. Incorporating memories of his Ohio Valley childhood, this clever and deeply-felt show celebrates theater as home, refuge and platform. Learn More

“Who doesn’t love Gilligan’s Island?” asks MMT artistic director Steven Meerdink. “Whether you grew up with the show, or whether you discovered it during reruns, Gilligan’s Island is firmly rooted in our popular culture. Certainly the show was written to entertain, but at the heart of the story is the idea that these seven people from very different walks of life must learn to cooperate with each other to survive. From that we get both the humor and the heart of this tale.”
Gilligan’s Island: The Musical first workshopped in Los Angeles in 1989 and the show debuted in Flat Rock, North Carolina in 1992. From there it went to Chicago, San Diego, and Thousand Oaks, and has subsequently been seen in multiple regional productions. An independently produced national tour traveled the country in 2009, playing to sold-out houses.
