Next up at Hutton’s Hamlet will be a performance of “Night at the Wax Museum” on Friday and Saturday, July 7 and 8. Six students who have flunked history retake the class in summer school, and set up a new wax museum as a class project. A mysterious incantation from the back of Cleopatra’s bracelet by one of the students brings the wax figures to life.
King Henry is smitten with Cleopatra, making his queen, Ann Boleyn, furious. If Ann can keep her head, John Adams will serve as her divorce attorney. When Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, Blackbeard, and a bevy of pirates show up, everybody’s out for a valuable treasure hidden in the museum. It’s a wild and hilarious goose chase to find it.
Hutton’s Hamlet Performing Arts Center is at 132 W. G St., Oakdale. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for 12 and under. Call for show times, 209-848-1216.
