     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts will present Aquila Theatre in “Hamlet” for one performance only on Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m.  
     According to Columbia Theatre/Fanfare Director Roy Blackwood, the production by the acclaimed Aquila Theatre will include a twist to the production, as is customary for the company, and is directed by Desiree Sanchez.    
     “Hamlet will seek to shed new light on this tragic story,” he said.  “The production uses movement, design, sound and superb acting to vividly explore the depths of rage, madness, love and death brought about by a culture of obsessive personal ambition.”
     Tickets for the production range from $30 to $40 and are available at the Columbia Theatre box office Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. or by phone at (985) 543-4371. Patrons may also get tickets online at
