The Ritz Theatre Company presents "I Hate Hamlet"

(HADDON TOWNSHIP, NJ) -- The Ritz Theatre Company presents the comedy-drama play I Hate Hamlet from June 9-25, 2023. Dealing with a girlfriend who is keeping a firm grasp on her chastity, Andrew plays host to the ghost of John Barrymore (played by New York-based television and stage theater actor Peter Herrick), who, clothed as Hamlet, has come back to convince Rally to play the part!

“With Paul Rudnick’s perfect, light summer play, you can toss your cares away and give your brain cells a rest,” says director Bruce A. Curless. “In the capable hands of six talented comedic actors, our little black box space will fill with laughter. You’ll meet the ghost of John Barrymore, a psychic real estate agent, and a romantic, theatrical agent, all in one room. This comedy is sheer entertainment!”

The cast for the Ritz Theatre Company production includes Joe Falcone (Andrew), Peter Herrick (Barrymore), Jennie Santiago (Deirdre), Noelle McLeer (Felicia), Ryan Henzes (Gary), and Susan Dewy (Lillian).

Presented as a Black Box experience, the audience will be seated on the main stage. To create an intimate experience, ticket sales are capped to 62 seats per show. I Hate Hamlet runs from June 9 – June 25, 2023. Tickets range from $27-$47 and are available for purchase online.

Written by Paul Rudnick, this play originally opened on Broadway in 1991 and continues to enjoy widespread popularity in theaters nationwide.

The Ritz Theatre Company is located at 915 White Horse Pike (in the Arts District) in Haddon Township, New Jersey.

The Ritz Theatre Company engages and enriches Delaware Valley audiences by producing professional, diverse entertainment while training artists of all levels in a historic New Jersey landmark.
