Friday, November 17

7:30 PM | Fall Drama (Cargill Theater). Join us for "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," by Tom Stoppard. A great modern classic! This is an inventive retelling of Hamlet, as seen from the point of view of bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare's play. These two outsiders become the main characters in Stoppard's examination of Shakespeare's classic. It is brilliantly funny and a genuine actor's theater piece. Suitable for Upper School and up. Tickets $5 at the door. Students are admitted free!
