Want a fun and relaxing Sunday afternoon activity? Do you live in the Tampabay, Clearwater, Florida area? Then why not check out the what is going on at the Murray Theatre?
Did you know Ruth Eckerd Hall has a resident theater company?
They do! Hat Trick Theater Productions and they are kicking off their second year at Ruth Eckerd Hall with three must-see performances. Including the Three Musketeers! Live theater at it’s best!
What did she look like?
One of the funniest lines in the production was asked of the young D’Artagnan, “What did she look like?” But, I’m not going to spoil the play for you! (They have performances through the end of May!) The play is full of funny quips and is fast paced.
Run D’Artagnan, run!
Leading into the intermission, the young D’Artagnan was tasked to run across France on a secret mission! And so, he ran, and ran and ran, all the way through intermission! Yes, the whole 15 minutes! Now that is a long way to go for a joke!
Me, being the clown I am, told him, “if your legs are getting tired D’Artagnan, you can have one of mine!” (Amputee joke!)
Yes, the Murray Theatre is handicap accessible!
The Murray Theatre is located on the ground floor of Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. The seating is stadium style with wheelchair parking, up front and personal. Going up a level or two, there are sturdy railings to guide your way.
