Hamlet

Representing such prestigious institutions as the Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare’s Globe and the Royal National Theatre of Great Britain, Actors From the London Stage (AFTLS) is both a long-running touring troupe and an “intensive residency program” that champions, explores and unpacks the Bard’s work via readings, workshops and performances. Formed in 1975 and co-founded by veteran actor Sir Patrick Stewart — who got his start in the Royal Shakespeare Company in the 1960s but is better recognized for his roles in the sci-fi franchises Star Trek and X-Men — the UK-based organization maintains a stateside presence at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana and sets up shop in more than a dozen other colleges each year. Regulars on the San Antonio and Austin campuses of the University of Texas, AFTLS has most recently impressed local crowds with stark, five-person, gender-bending interpretations of Measure for Measure (2017) and Richard III (2016) and returns this year with a revisitation of Hamlet. Falling under a dramatic fog of mystery, madness and death, the early 17th-century work follows the Prince of Denmark as he battles demons in the forms of his father’s ghost, widowed mother and vulturous, throne-hungry uncle.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
