Quincy Smelter Tour

Shows & Events
11:00 AM To 03:00 PM
Location: Hancock
$5/person, children under 10 free, AAA discount. The Quincy Smelter Association hosts tours monthly so visitors such as yourself can see the only intact copper smelter from the American Industrial Revolution around the turn of the 20th Century. See much of the original machinery used to turn ore into copper ingots. Not only can you see the original equipment from the smelter's construction in 1898. But our guides will point out the major changes in the Great Expansion of 1920. We look forward to showing this and much more.



Since much of the tour is spent in the buildings, this is a great event even on rainy days. Directions: Turn right after crossing the bridge on to M-26, go 1/4 mile to the sign on the right. The smelter is a former industrial site. We recommend wearing closed shoes for your safety.

"I Hate Hamlet" at Theatre North

Arts &Theater
07:00 PM
Location: Theatre North, Ironwood
Directed by: Heidi Brown A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there's one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore's ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment. "…fast-mouthed and funny…It has the old-fashioned Broadway virtues of brightness without pretensions and sentimentality without morals." —Village Voice. "…unapologetically silly and at times hilarious…affectionately amusing about the theatre…" —NY Times. --- Quoted from Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
