Hermiston High School’s Drama Club will perform the parody “The Hamlet Thrill-ma-geddon” on Nov. 15, 16, 22 and 23 in the school auditorium. The show is recommended for all ages.
Forty students are involved in the production. Instead of Shakespeare’s verse, the parody has musical numbers with back-up dancers and a post-apocalyptic zombie battle. Zariah Uzzell, the student choreographing and arranging the musical numbers, notes, “We’re having a blast parodying songs from other shows, and I think the audience will enjoy it.”
All performances begin at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the high school bookkeeping office. Ticket prices are $2 for students, $5 for adults, and $4 for senior citizens 65 years and older with ID. Seating is general admission, but groups of ten or more may purchase reserved seats by e-mailing Dr. Beth Anderson at email@example.com.
The drama club will sell refreshments during intermission. After each performance, the cast will be available for photos in a designated area outside the theater.
