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.

General Admission is $10. High school and college student admission is free with valid student ID. This event is rated PG.
