    Mr. Feeny assigns the class roles for the school play. Cory is picked for Hamlet but he refuses. Cory is then replaced by Minkus. Cory realizes that wearing tights and Shakespeare isn’t all bad. He tries to get back his role, but Mr. Feeny says that it’s too late. Cory must play a spear-carrier. The Matthews vacation plans are cancelled because Alan’s pay was cut by 5% along with the other employees. They usually have an annual miniature golf game: Alan and Cory VS Amy and Eric. Since they can’t go, Alan makes a course in the backyard.

    This was a great episode! I thought that Cory found that not all old or seemingly insignificant roles could be very important. I give this episode a 9.0!moreless

    Good episode.

    This episode is great for a season one episode. Minkus is hilarious as he practices for the role of Hamlet and even after he takes over the part from Cory. He practices the lines with a Scandinavian accent and with an American Southern accent. Then, when he is Hamlet, he does the part without his glasses, which causes him to face the wrong way on stage and even to fall off the stage.

    This episode is about not backing out when people count on you. Cory backs out of being Hamlet because he does not want to wear tights. He learns the lesson through his dad having to take a paycut at work. His dad can't back out of it, even though he is the manager of the grocery store.

    Everyone was counting on Cory to be Hamlet and things changed when Minkus had to play the part, being that he was the only other person who knew the lines.moreless

    Cory is cast to play Hamlet in the school play

    By fullhouse346, Aug 04, 2006

    When Cory is cast to play Hamlet in the school play, he is excited at first. But then, when the acting he has to do seems to strange to him, he quits. Mr. Feeny tries to get Cory to get back into the play, but he refuses. As a last resort, Mr. Feeny hands the role of Hamlet over to Minkus, who is a terrible actor. (though it seemspretty forced how bad Minkus is). When Cory gets the job of a spear carrier instead and sees how bad Minkus is at acting, he tries to win the role back, but Mr. Feeny denies Cory this time. Cory learns not to give up.moreless
