We are thrilled to announce the shows we have on tap for our next season! We are book-ending the season with two very different takes on a classic you may have heard of by Will Shakespeare: Hamlet.

SPRING IS IN THE HART: A Storytelling Fundraiser

Saturday, March 28th, storyteller Batya Podos is bringing spring to HART Theatre with tales of clever women, crafty animals and new beginnings. A professional storyteller for over thirty years, this third annual storytelling fundraiser is a matinee performance designed especially for families—a great way to spend an afternoon together and support local community theatre!

In addition, she is offering a pre-show storytelling workshop for kids and adults, some of whom will be able to join her on stage for a storytelling. The workshop will run from 12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m., the performance begins at 2 pm.

Tickets for the performance are $10 per person, $25 per family and include snacks. There will also be some great family friendly baskets to bid on in a silent auction to help raise money for HART. Reservations are necessary for the workshop. If you would like for the whole family to participate in the workshop, call the theatre for a special family rate.

 Please go online or contact the theatre to reserve your space!
