USCA Players Present I Hate Hamlet'
The University Theater Players will present I Hate Hamlet at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 3 p.m. Saturday at USC Aiken’s Eth-erredge Center.
The play centers around Andrew Rally, a famous television actor who seems to have it all; a beautiful girlfriend, a devoted agent, the perfect apartment, and a chance to play Hamlet in Central Park.
But unfortunately for Rally, his TV show has been canceled, his girlfriend is clinging to her virginity, and he has absolutely no desire to tackle the role of Hamlet.
While Rally is dealing with all of these disasters, the ghost of John Barrymore decides to haunt him, just to make sure Rally accepts the part of Hamlet and fulfills his actor’s destiny.
The comedy is directed by Dewey Scott-Wiley, a professional actor and director at Trustus Theater in Columbia, who is a part-time faculty member at USCA.
Tickets for I Hate Hamlet are $8 for adults and $4 for students.
Call 641-3305 for more information.

► Ike Carpenter receives 1995 Folk Heritage Award from S.C. Legislature.
From Staff Reports
A Trenton woodcarver was among the artisans recently honored by the South Carolina State Legislature with a 1995 Folk Heritage Award.
Ike Carpenter — a third generation woodcarver, furniture maker and carpenter — is best known for making a special kind of traditional carving known as a “ball and chain” or “ball and cage.”
These carvings are extremely difficult to make and are designed to show off a carver’s virtuosity. Each carving is made out of a single piece of wood that has not been sawed, glued or pieced together.
Carpenter learned woodcarving from his family, but he was also apprenticed with John Mathis, a master cabinet maker who taught at the De la Howe School near McCormick.
During his apprenticeship, Carpenter learned every stage of traditional furniture making, until he could turn an ordinary felled tree into a finely crafted piece of furniture using only primitive hand tools such as the axe, adze and shaving horse.
Carpenter shares his woodworking knowledge with children in lo
cal schools. He also makes presentations to the community through USC Aiken and the McCormick Heritage Festival.
When asked about his and his forefathers’ craft, Carpenter replied simply, “Wood is our life -it’s in the blood. If you give me a piece of wood and a sharp instrument, I’m going to cut on it.”
Folk Heritage Awards recognize outstanding contributions to the arts. Other 1995 recipients included country and bluegrass musician Roger Bellow of Mount Pleasant, Gullah folklorist Agnes Brown of McClellanville, and the All Male Chorus of Blacksburg.
