How to Kill a Mockingbird
Five less-than-stellar students meet to work on their group English project. Their assigned reading: Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird." Unfortunately, not one of the five has actually read the book. In fact, nobody even brought a copy of the book along. Worst of all, they're not exactly sure what the title of the book even is! Thus begins a hilarious series of guesses and assumptions, which culminate in a massive conspiracy theory about the book and the true threat of mockingbirds!
Week 6: July 16-20, ages 8-17
Hammie: Shakespeare's Hamlet in Twenty-Five Hilarious Minutes
Written by The Downeaster's own Executive Artistic Director, Hammie is a one-act gut-splitting version of the famous tragedy, modernized and minimalistic, with the addition of video games, corporate coffee, pop culture references, and a splash of cross-dressing. Foam swords and absurdity abound in this half-hour romp.
