HAMILTON – The Palace Players, Hamilton’s new community theater, present their first production, “The Palace Briefs, 6 One-Acts-Original and Not-So-Original.” The show is Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. The plays are light, comedic and entertaining. Tickets are $6 for students and seniors (60+) and $9 for adults.
“The Palace Theater is a great venue for professionals as well as aspiring playwrights, directors and actors,” said Jim McDowell, author of Very Badly Killed. His son, Mason, who is directing that show says, “The Palace kicks local theater up a notch with the national acts, and we are so lucky to have its resources in Hamilton so we can work toward fulfilling our goals and dreams as well.”
Four of the one-acts are original plays. Very Badly Killed, written by Jim McDowell, Hamilton, is a comedy. Did Engleburt’s husband, Charles, really step in front of the 9:05 to Windham? Or was it suicide? And what about all that steamy junk mail from Ed McMahon? It’s Lieutenant John Peterson’s toughest case yet, but, with the help of longtime partner Sergeant Morelli, it just might be impossible.
