We’ll be taking a deep dive into the text of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, giving students the chance to grapple with the themes and characters from an actor’s standpoint before preparing Tom Stoppard’s now-classic 15-minute comedy version* for performance. Students will also work with a choreographer to learn some renaissance dance steps to pair with their performance in the Winter Showcase.
*Because this version calls for a relatively small cast, students should be prepared to be double cast and only to perform in this portion of the show on one of the performance evenings.
