In this farce of ‘Shakespearean’ proportions, acting students at Little Ripple Academy for the Performing Arts are struggling to turn around a troubled production of Hamlet when the student director, Story Hart, gets some unbelievable news from their family’s recent ancestry test; that Story might be descended from the Bard himself!  Story must decide if they are going to give-in to peer pressure and try to live up to the legendary talent of the most famous playwright that ever lived, or risk choosing their own creative path.    Everyone who registers will be cast — don’t miss your chance to be part of this exciting opportunity!

*Absences from Technical Rehearsals and Performances will not be allowed.  Absences from Staging Rehearsals are highly discouraged and may have an impact on a student’s participation in the program.
