The Whitefish Theatre Co. presents its final cabaret show of the 2018-2019 theater season with a hilarious production of “I Hate Hamlet” at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish. Called “fast-mouthed and funny,” this entertaining show opens with a sneak preview tonight at 7:30 p.m. Performances continue May 31, June 1 and 2 and June 7 and 9, all at 7:30 p.m.

“I Hate Hamlet” follows Andrew Rally, an aspiring actor who has just relocated to New York and landed the role of a lifetime playing Hamlet onstage. There is just one problem: He hates Hamlet. As fate would have it, Andrew’s new Manhattan residence is the former apartment of the brilliant actor John Barrymore, whose portrayal of Hamlet was legendary. When Barrymore’s ghost appears to Andrew – intoxicated and in full Shakespearean garb – so begins a wildly funny duel between the two actors over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, even the apartment.

This production features Matt Stroop as Andrew Rally, Alfred Coggins as John Barrymore, Becky Rygg Mead as Dierdre McDavey, Katie Nixon as Felicia Dantine, Patty Thiel as Lillian Troy, and Mikey Winn as Gary Peter Lefkowitz.

Tickets for tonight’s sneak preview are $12 for adults and $10 for students and are available only at the door with general seating. Tickets for other performances are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $10 for students with reserved table and traditional theater seating. Food and beverages are available for purchase.

Tickets can be purchased at the Box Office, 1 Central Ave., Whitefish, or by calling 862-5371. Box office hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour before performance times. Tickets can also be purchased online at www.whitefishtheatreco.org.
