For this production, we will transform the amphitheater into an Elizabethan theater, including NEW SEATING SECTIONS ON STAGE -creating an immersive experience for audiences! Consider ONSTAGE seating when planning your visit to enjoy the fullness of this unique production. (Onstage seats are padded benches with backs similar in style to church pews. The bench seat is padded. Seating is assigned.)
The role of Hamlet will be played by two actors (Laura Welsh Berg and Jonathan Dyrud) during the run of this production. The actors will alternate by performance. Click here to view a performance schedule with complete information.
When his suspiciously widowed mother swiftly marries his uncle, amidst demands for revenge from his murdered father’s ghost, the young prince Hamlet resolves that something is indeed “rotten in the state of Denmark.” Forced by circumstance into a world turned upside down by betrayal, distrust and madness, Hamlet spirals through a torrent of erratic emotion and bizarre behavior in a relentless pursuit of truth. Torn between duty and doubt, he wrestles tenaciously with the profound question “to be or not to be,” until fate exacts its final answer.
Age Recommendation: Suitable for all ages.
(PLEASE VERIFY TIME WITH VENUE. WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR CHANGES OF START AND END TIMES)
