BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
DIRECTED BY GRANT SORENSON
The most discussed, analyzed, performed, and quoted play in the English speaking world, Hamlet tracks the rise and fall of the royal family of Denmark through the eyes of young prince Hamlet. Returning from university after the sudden death of his father, Hamlet is disturbed to learn that his mother and uncle have married hastily. When the ghost of his father appears to him and demands Hamlet avenge his murder, a complicated time bomb begins ticking down the seconds toward an inevitably tragic end. In an agile new production that centers a young person navigating grief and identity, Hamlet is the pinnacle of dramatic writing, exploring political intrigue, human morality, and the fine line between feigned madness and real insanity.
Tickets for Hamlet will go on sale later this spring!
Hamlet is Shakespeare's dramatic masterpiece and centers a young person navigating identity and grief after the death of a parent. It contains some scary moments, simulated onstage violence, and conversations around mental health, death, and suicide. Hamlet is recommended for ages 10+.
