Hamlet: Audition Info


by William Shakespeare

directed by Elizabeth Hunter

Hamlet is the well-known story of a prince struggling to find the appropriate response to his uncle’s suspected perfidy. Our production will be fast-paced, in your face, physical, and yet very focused on the text. Nine actors will be cast as single characters and five actors as "Ensemble." The role of Hamlet has been pre-cast. All other roles are open to actors of all genders and ethnicities.
