BARNSTABLE COMEDY CLUB PRESENTS “I HATE HAMLET”

March 5, 2011

March 10-13, 18-20, 25-27, 2011

Barnstable Comedy Club, 3171 Main Street, Rte 6A, Barnstable Village

Box Office: 508-362-6333
Website: www.barnstablecomedyclub.com

Thurs(3/10)/Fri/Sat @ 8p.m., Sun @ 2:30p.m.

The Barnstable Comedy Club continues its 89th season with “I Hate Hamlet” by Paul Rudnick & Directed by Toby Wilson. “I Hate Hamlet” will be presented March 10-12, 18-19, and 25-26 at 8:00 p.m. and March 13, 20, and 27 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $16, $14 for students and seniors. Tickets may be reserved by calling the box office at 508-362-6333. Andrew Rally seems to have it all: celebrity and acclaim from his starring role in a hit television series; a rich beautiful girlfriend; a glamorous, devoted agent; the perfect New York apartment; and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. There are, however, a couple of glitches in paradise. Andrew’s series has been canceled; his girlfriend is clinging to her virginity with unyielding conviction; and he has no desire to play Hamlet. When Andrew’s agent visits him, she reminisces about her brief romance with John Barrymore many years ago, in Andrew’s apartment. This prompts a séance to summon his ghost. From the moment Barrymore returns, dressid in high Shakespearean garb, Andrew’s life is no longer his own. Barrymore, fortified by champagne and ego, presses Andrew to accept the part and fulfill his actor’s destiny. The action becomes more hilarious with the entrance of Andrew’s deal-making friend from LA, spouting the laid-back hype of the Coast and offering Andrew a fabulous new TV deal worth millions of dollars. The laughs are nonstop as Andrew wrestles with his conscience, Barrymore, his sword, and the fact that he fails as Hamlet in Central Park.

Yah man, Beach House kicks off Reggae Sundays! Consensus among Cape Codders seems to be that it’s been a LONG winter and most of us are longing for warmer days. With several weeks of winter looming, The Beach House is helping bridge the gap with Reggae Sundays, featuring the warmth of soul food and soul music! Every Sunday through March from 4-8 PM, The Beach House will offer a special Jamaican dinner created by Chef Eric Lemonius, who incidentally, is a native of Falmouth, Jamaica. Lemonius grew up cooking with his mother and grandmother in their family kitchen, and adds his Caribbean touch to many of the Beach House’s menu items. The Sunday afternoon Jamaican dinner will include jerk pork, jerk chicken, jerk chicken wings, red beans and rice, and callaloo, a traditional Caribbean dish made with spinach, butter and special seasonings. The cost is $8.95. Diners can also groove to the mellow tunes of Soul Foundation every week. The four piece Falmouth band, influenced by Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix, describe their style as roots music with a mix of reggae and blues.

THE 300 COMMITTEE BIRD AND NATURE WALK

March 5, 2011

Mar 5 & 6, 2011

Depot Avenue Parking Lot, Depot Ave, across from the Falmouth Bus Station, Falmouth

Website: www.300committee.org

Sat @ 10a.m., Sun @ 12p.m.

Take a look at the geology of Falmouth from the section of the Bike Path that runs from Depot Avenue to Little Sippewissett Marsh, crossing from the outwash to the moraine. Note: this is a walk, not a bike ride. Distance: about 3½ miles. Leader: Beth Schwarzman. Meet in the parking lot at Depot Avenue. We’ll walk north on the bike path, admiring the geology, and noting how the geologic features control the natural history and the human history of the area. We’ll retrace our steps back to Depot Ave. on the return trip, but it is amazing how much different it will look, and how many new things we’ll see. We’ll take our chances with the weather – we’ll walk rain or shine, but deep snow cancels the walk. No dogs, please.
