Charlotte's Web //  September 27th, 2024

Charlotte's Web is based on E.B. White's beautiful story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte. The Children's Literature Association names this "the best American Children's Book in 200 Years.” Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as bacon. Charlotte, a loyal friend and gifted writer, devises a plan to trick Farmer Zuckerman. She crafts "miracles," spinning words into her web. Charlotte saves Wilbur and establishes his place on the farm forever. This cherished story features endearing farm animals and explores love, bravery and the meaning of friendship.

Actors From The London Stage: Hamlet  //  March 4th, 2024

Madness, revenge, and the supernatural: Hamlet remains one of the most well-known of all Shakespeare plays, and for good reason. This powerful tale of vengeance and insanity still retains the power to thrill audiences everywhere. Blending tension, pathos, and poetry, Hamlet remains as exciting and relevant to modern audiences as ever.
The ghost of the King of Denmark tells his son Hamlet to avenge his murder by killing the new king, Hamlet's uncle. Hamlet feigns madness, contemplates life and death, and seeks revenge. His uncle, fearing for his life, also devises plots to kill Hamlet. The tension rises, culminating in a fateful duel between Hamlet and Laertes, a duel whose outcome leads to tragedy for all.

Actors From The London Stage celebrates its 50th anniversary with a triumphant return to one of Shakespeare’s most iconic titles. Each member of this self-directed ensemble portrays multiple roles while favoring minimal props and costumes, creating a theatrical experience like no other.
