Free Lance-Star reporter Amy Umble covers Stafford County schools and other education issues
Here are some details on two upcoming plays in Stafford County high schools:
The Mountain view High School Wild Acts Presents “Arsenic and Old Lace”. Come out and enjoy this classic American “dark comedy” on May 10, 11 and 12 at 7 p.m. in the MVHS auditorium. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors and $6 for adults.
HAMLET THRILL-MA-GEDDON by Don Zolidis
May 10-12, 2012 – 7pm — Colonial Forge HS
550 Courthouse Road
When the drama department’s budget is slashed, they turn to ‘Hamlet,’ the tragedy by Shakespeare, to raise cash (no royalties!)~ but it’s not tickets that will fund this show, it’s sweet corporate sponsorship & product placement. The sponsors demand changes in the script, which leads to a hilarious ‘Hamlet’ unlike any you’ve ever seen before. Don’t miss this lightning-quick spoof of one of the greatest plays in the English language!
