    A Candlelight “Hamlet” at Locust Grove
    Experience a chamber theatre reading of Shakespeare's “Hamlet” by candlelight in Locust Grove's 18th century Great Parlor. This 90-minute version of one of the Bard's greatest plays will be performed by members of Kentucky Shakespeare. Their presentation of Macbeth last December was a sell-out - so call now to reserve your seat for Hamlet. Doors open at 6:30 pm for light refreshments before the show. Seating is limited to 60 people; reservations are required.
    March 19, 7 - 9 p.m.
