A modernized Wa-Hi production of the classic Shakespeare play, Hamlet!
Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, is faced with many troubling realities after the sudden death of his father. Now he deals with untrusty friends, the recent marriage of his mother, a country in political turmoil, and shocking news involving his father's death. This is a story of internal conflict and revenge. A must see for all Wa-Hi students!
A Word From the Director
Kristin Glaeser, teacher in all things theater, says, “I feel that high school students need an opportunity at least once in their high school career to both see and participate in a Shakespeare play. His work is classic and is studied from middle school all the way through graduate and doctorate studies. Attacking the work head on at this age can make it both approachable and enjoyable. I specifically chose Hamlet because it's one of Shakespeare's best plays (if not THE best) and has great teenage parts. We are bringing it into the modern age (2018 setting) and adding a rock flair to it. We will have an original score played by Wa-Hi students. It's going to be a really awesome production.”
The show dates are November 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17 at 7pm and November 10 & 17 at 2pm. Tickets go on sale in October. Hope to see you there Wa-Hi!
