At the new Mars Theater August 15-24. Shows are at 7 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays. The second feature of the evening is Gerry Hansen’s new farce “Ros and Guild,” which places Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” in the topsy-turvy world of Commedia. Both plays are directed by Hansen, whose nimble staging sets the iconic “Hamlet” up so that it can be punched squarely in the funny bone by “Ros and Guild.” Tickets are available at the WYO Theater box office at 672-9084 or www.wyotheater.com. General Admission is $10. High school and college student admission is free with valid student ID. This event is rated PG.
