One of Shakespeare's most famous tragedies, Hamlet explores themes of revenge, madness, mortality, and the moral complexities of action and inaction. As the Prince of Denmark, Hamlet's life is thrown into chaos following the sudden death of his father. When the ghost of his father appears to reveal a shocking truth, Hamlet is set on a path of revenge! This timeless story resonates with audiences for its exploration of ambition and the human condition.

The production features Arts Center favorite Annachristi Cordes in the role of Hamlet, Julia Marie Black as Ophelia, Charlotte Peartree Moon as Laertes, Jordan Hornstein as Polonius, Karen Lordi-Kirkham as Gertrude, Ted Kirkham as Claudius, Maureen Carroll as Horatio, and, in various other roles, Jennifer Bine, George Cordes, David Myers, and Walter Kirkham.
