Maggie’s will be offering dessert and drinks at the show and after the show The Mechanicals will do a brief meet and greet at the Opera House before heading over to Stone Tower Brews for a post-show ShakesBEERe reception.
Hamlet has the world at his feet. Young, wealthy, and living a hedonistic life studying abroad. Then word reaches him that his father is dead. Returning home he finds his world is utterly changed, his certainties smashed and his home a foreign land. Struggling to understand his place in a new world order he faces a stark choice. Submit, or rage against the injustice of his new reality. As relevant today as when it was written, Hamlet confronts each of us with the mirror of our own morality in an imperfect world.
Directed by Jason A Young with Technical Director by David Byard, Costume Design by Jason Noland, Hair & Make-Up Design by Samantha Huffman, Dramaturgy by John Shirley and Production Management by Sarah Young, The Mechanicals featured in this production include Josh Brooks, Daniel Crowley, Justin Grow, Cassandra Hackbart, Sarah Smith, Sean Marko, James Matthews, John O'Connor, Kyle Stemple, Samantha Huffman, and Sarah Young.
