    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

    - Presents “Hamlet II (Better Than the Original)” by Sam Bobrick

    Performance Dates: May 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21

    Not a sequel, exactly, but a loose retelling of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy played strictly for laughs, with an irritable ghost, a pregnant Ophelia, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern a la Groucho Marx. Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, knows something is rotten – but finds himself quoting Edgar Allen Poe while debating whether to be. Or, you know, not to be. Is that the question?

    Ticket prices are $13 for Thursday (7:30 pm) and Sunday (2:00 pm) shows, and $15 Friday and Saturday performances (8:00 pm). Audition information is also available on the website.
