First, come the baby ducks :) They were so tiny and cute!
While waiting for Hamlet to begin, I met Frankie and Lily. They caught my eye immediately. When Frankie shook his head and I could see drool flying, I knew I had to introduce myself and let the owners know if they saw a giant lens pointed their way, it was all about the dogs. Their owners were cool, they understood :) Those are some loved puppies- which always makes my heart happy. Awww...would have been a good photo op for Purse Duck...
Lily held out for the real camera- she can't be bothered with iPhone pics!
I was surprised how many lines I still remembered! The second act had to be canceled due to technical issues. We will definitely return. :)

"You were sent for; and there is a kind of confession in your looks which your modesties have not craft enough to color. I know the good king and queen have sent for you."
Thank you, Actors' Theatre, for a wonderful evening. My family looks forward to seeing Hamlet in its entirety soon.
Also, thank you, Cassie, for helping me find good lines for the pics. :)
