Aurora Theatre Co. previews for 'Wittenberg,' a wry view of Hamlet's higher education, begin Friday, April 4th, with opening Thursday the 10th, performances continuing through May 4th. 

David Davalos' play, directed by Josh Costello, follows the Melancholy Prince's return to the ivy halls for his senior year (Class of 1518), troubled by a great revelation, and finding himself bounced back and forth between the opposing views of two famous professors: Rev. Martin Luther and Dr. John Faustus. The cast includes one of the Bay Area's finest comic actors, Dan Hiatt. 

Tuesday through Sunday at various times, including matinees. 2081 Addison, near Shattuck. $32-$50, with $20 rush tickets a half hour before curtain, cash only, availability not guaranteed. 843-4822;
