Silver Anniversary Season Begins At Hutton’s Hamlet

Marking their silver jubilee anniversary, the 25th season, Hutton’s Hamlet in Oakdale is getting ready for its first play of the summer 2023 schedule.

“Help! I’m Trapped in a Musical!” will kick off the series of performances at Hutton’s Hamlet, corner of Church and West G streets.

There’s something strange going on at Sondheim High School. New transfer student Norma LaBelle is having trouble getting accustomed to the school’s unusual traditions. At any given moment, students and teachers burst into song for no apparent reason, and it sounds almost like a famous Broadway musical. The math teacher sings a lesson on the Pythagorean Theorem. The history teacher delivers a rap-filled class on Alexander Graham Bell. The lunch lady delivers a menu filled with Broadway-themed meals. The students sing a celebration of Mondays and even the bad kids perform the “Detention Tango.”

Principal Webber is hiding a secret and enforces strict rules to keep the truth hidden from the students.

Hutton’s Hamlet Performing Arts Center is at 132 W. G St., Oakdale. Tickets for the first play in the summer series are available at $12 for adults; $8 for those 12 and under. Performances are scheduled for Friday, June 9 at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, June 10 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
