Master Pieces
Although it’s open season for Spring Green’s insect life, August is still the best time to visit American Players Theatre. Pick a weekend that highlights your choice of shows, reserve a spot at a local B&B and hit the road. This year, APT offers a must-see double feature on the stunning outdoor Up-the-Hill Theatre. For the first time in a decade, APT stages Shakespeare’s masterpiece Hamlet, featuring Matt Schwader in the title role. But this time, the Dane’s tale is paired with Tom Stoppard’s witty riff Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, a comedy that enacts the same story but through the eyes of the lowly courtiers who are summarily dispatched before the play ends. 

 Hamlet (June 29-Oct. 4). Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (Aug. 2-Oct. 5). American Players Theatre. Up-the-Hill Theatre. 5950 Golf Course Rd., Spring Green, 608-588-2361, americanplayers.org.
