Dear Parents,

Peace!  Congratulations to you and your son/daughter for being part of our Fall Production, William Shakespeare’s Hamlet (Adapted for the St. Francis Stage by EEulalia).  We are very excited about this production. With everyone’s help, we can make this another great St. Francis Theatre production.

In order to make this show a success, we do need everyone’s help.  First, please click the button below to fill out the Parent Volunteer Form.  This form lists available volunteer opportunities.  Please let us know how you might be able to help in one or more of these areas.  Once we have compiled a list of volunteers, we will contact you, via e-mail, with more details regarding what will be needed, and when.

We would like to continue our tradition of providing hot, nutritious dinners for the cast, staff and crew before each tech/dress rehearsals and performances.  We can only do this with your support.  There will be 7 meal days for cast, volunteers and crew (total 40).  It is a big undertaking and we would recommend families pair up with other families willing to provide the dinners.  We are asking each family to donate $40 per student to help offset the cost of pb&j, nutritious snack items, fruits, etc. during rehearsals.  Checks should be made payable to St. Francis Theatre – Food Fund.  We will separately e-mail you more details about which days meals will be provided. 

There is a costume fee associated with being part of this production. Please turn in a $150 check made payable to "St. Francis Theater."

This year, we will try our best to go “Green.”  We will be banning water bottles, paper and Styrofoam cups in the theater. We will be providing, gratis, each cast, crew and staff with AquaFlask stainless steel water bottles. There will be two 5-gallon water dispensers in the theater. For the concession stand during the four performances though, we are asking that each family donate a case of regular-sized water bottles.  We would like to be more eco-friendly and get rid of paper/styro/plastic cups as much as possible.

Throughout the show, you will receive more information regarding Cast Ticket Order, Program Dedication, and DVD/T-Shirt Orders. Forms will be emailed to you and made available on this webpage.

Ticket price for this show is $20.00.  Public sales start October 8.
