The Idaho Shakespeare Festival is preparing for another summer under the stars - its 41st season. This year’s repertory includes Wait Until Dark, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, a musical adaptation of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Hound of the Baskervilles and a rather unique twist on Hamlet.

Weekend Edition’s George Prentice talks with the festival’s producing artistic director Charles Fee about how he builds a season and his unique casting decision for Hamlet.

Listen to their conversation below.
