CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, May I - May 7, 1998- 71 Cape Thespians to perform 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern' By Kelianne Bailey The Cape Henlopen Thespians are working hard to produce the Tom Stoppard comedy "Rosen- crantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," which will be staged at the Cape Henlopen Little Theatre on Friday, May 1, and Saturday, May 2, at 7:30 p.m., both days. "The play is hilarious," said Su- san Clark, "It's really coming to- gether nicely." The comedy picks up where Shakespeare's play "Hamlet" leaves off. At the end of "Hamlet," Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are killed when Hamlet figures out his two school buddies are spies for his uncle, the new king. Throughout the Stop- pard comedy, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are desperately try- ing to figure out where they are and what happened to them. Periodically, clips from the play "Hamlet" are performed, showing the great parallelism between the two works. "'Rosencrantz and Guilden- stern' has an element of genius. Stoppard probes many facets of the human condition, and some- times touches on very deep sub- jects. Above all, this is a British com- edy and an audience should sim- ply come expecting to gather what they can, and hopefully, have a good time doing so," said Sarah McCarron, who will be playing Rosencrantz in the upcoming pro- duction. Sarah Shields will play Guildenstern, and she feels that this play has been quite an experi- ence "At first," she said, "I strived to find the lost meanings in the play. Now I've come to realize that there is so much meaning, it really means nothing at all. Then again, I could be wrong."
