Theatre Kelowna kicks off their new season with the comedy I Hate Hamlet, opening Mar. 4 at the Blackbox Theatre on Doyle Avenue.

This will also be the 60th year of community-run theatre in Kelowna, and this will be the first of four productions from Theatre Kelowna this season.

The intimate 80-seat capacity Blackkbox is located in the rear of the Kelowna Community Theatre and promises to be the perfect location for this production, which stars Bob Sterling and Joel Montgrande in the leading roles, with a strong supporting cast in the farce. Written by playwright Paul Rudnick and directed by Margaret Gobie, it tells the story of television actor Andrew Rally, played by Montgrande, who is visited by the ghost of John Barrymore as he prepares for the role of Hamlet.

A story about following your instincts and your heart, it has plenty of rollicking action and hilarious dialogue along with the message.

I Hate Hamlet runs from Mar. 4 – 7 and Mar. 18 – 21 with shows nightly at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.
