Gamut Theatre’s Shakespeare in the Woods: Hamlet

July 16 & 17 | 7pm | Free

“What a piece of work is a man?” Hamlet is one of the most powerful and influential tragedies in the English language. Gamut Theatre’s interpretation deals with the most compelling of the play’s themes: Philosophy, revenge, morality, psychosis, and suicide through the eye of the adolescent. A modern version of this age-old play is sure to intrigue and challenge any group, leaving them with the question “To be, or not to be? Recommended for ages 12 and up, the production is extremely accessible, employing Gamut’s unique educational engagement style of combining Shakespeare’s original text with modern narrations to bridge the most famous scenes from the play together into an easy-to-understand story. This dynamic show is performed by six highly talented actors, runs 90 minutes, and each performance is followed by a talk-back discussion with the audience. Bring your own price, any size donation buys admission. There will also be a “preshow” from our NSC Summer Camp.
