SHAKESPEARE IN HOLLYWOOD
June 14 - June 29
One could hardly call this a typical Shakespeare play. Cameras are rolling on the 1930’s Hollywood set of A Mid Summer Night’s Dream. Actors are in place and German director, Max Reinhardt, is barking direction at them. During the commotion, who should appear on scene but Shakespeare’s very own characters, Oberon and Puck! The film actors not only find themselves switching in and out of scenes with the jesters, but also discover that the real Puck has found a way to utilize his love potion! What else will this otherworldly encounter have in store for them?
June 7 - June 22
The Village Players of Hatboro
SHOW DATES: June (2019) 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22
Biloxi Blues centers on the experiences of a young army recruit, Eugene Morris Jerome, during World War II. At basic training in Biloxi, Mississippi, Eugene is determined to use his army experiences to help his writing career, and keeps detailed memoirs about his experiences. Eugene and his fellow soldiers-in-training suffer under a hard-nosed drill sergeant, attempt to stomach the terrible army food served up in the mess hall, and bond over an adventure to visit the local prostitute. Along the way, Eugene is forced to learn about authority, danger, sex, assimilation, bigotry, homosexuality and love. In the process, he discovers that life can be both ugly and tender.
