Leland & Gray Players perform ‘15 Minute Hamlet’

TOWNSHEND — The Leland & Gray Players Theatre Program will perform The 15 Minute Hamlet by Tom Stoppard at Leland & Gray Middle and High School, at the Dutton Gym on Route 30, on March 5 and 6, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $5.

The play takes one of William Shakespeare's finest, most well-known, and longest tragedies and shrinks it down to 15 minutes - resulting, according to a news release, in “quite a bit of laughter.”

Following the performance at Leland & Gray, the production will travel to compete at the regional drama festival at Essex High School on March 7 at 8 p.m.

Directed by Jac Clark and Bronwyn Sims, the production features actors Emma Kelly, Luc Parker-Jennings, Fiona Scott, Kiki Pena, Ruby Hallenbeck, Stephen Shine, Catherine Shine, Trevor Hazelton. It is stage-managed by Oliver Anderson.
