Fi­nal Sum­mer Show

Lucky Lucky Hud­son will be the fi­nal per­for­mance of­fered at Hut­ton’s Hamlet in Oak­dale for their sum­mer youth theatre se­ries. Show times are Fri­day, Aug. 3 at 7 p.m.; and Satur­day, Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Through a clever plot twist, up-and­com­ing teenage writer Steve Jenkins gets pulled into his own story. Lucky Hud­son, his crime-bust­ing hero, places him right into the comic un­der­world of night­clubs and back al­leys with a non­stop par­ody of crooks and rack­e­teers: Big Al, Lit­tle Al, and Medium Al, Ma Cribbs, Mad Dog Myr­tle, Two-Gun Tommy, Petty-Larceny Jane, and many more. The show is a per­fect blend of song, story, and ac­tion.
