Something is rotten in the state of Denmark

Join Black Dirt Theater on its first foray into the rich tragedy of Shakespeare. His father poisoned, Hamlet seeks revenge against his malicious uncle, Claudius, who has seized the throne. “To be or not to be,” a lush choreographed sword fight, and a cast of talented community members punctuate this classic tale of lies, love and murder.

Outreach Cast

The Outreach Cast for Hamlet is working together to share one of Shakespeare's greatest plays with even more members of the community! Making stops at the Hastings Senior Center, Regina Medical Center, and Villa Parks Senior Living (Roseville, MN), the Outreach Cast will tackle the entire play in under 30 minutes.  The tragedy of Hamlet turned comical, quick, and campy.
