Hamlet Prince of Denmark
Performance dates -
Aug 17 - Sept 3 Thurs - Sun @7pm
The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, often shortened to Hamlet is considered among the "most powerful and influential tragedies in the English language", with a story capable of "seemingly endless retelling and adaptation by others". This tragedy written by William Shakespeare sometime between 1599 and 1601 is Shakespeare's longest play, with 29,551 words. Set in Denmark, the play depicts Prince Hamlet and his attempts to exact revenge against his uncle, Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father in order to seize his throne and marry Hamlet's mother. Set in the style of Game of Thrones this retelling will excite and mesmerize audiences.

At every performance at 6:00 before the 7pm curtain, while you enjoy a picnic or arrive early to get good seats, we will introduce the play you are about to see. Written by a Shakespeare scholar, the presentation will dive into plot lines, themes, characters, history, and help immerse you in the rich texts that have entertained audiences for four hundred years. A great way to get new Shakespeare audiences up to speed. Or, for Shakespeare enthusiasts, a wonderful way to dig deeper into your understanding of Shakespeare’s brilliant mind.
