  • Produced in partnership with NVC Performing Arts Faculty Series By Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor Before the Tragedy, there was…HAMLET’S BIG ADVENTURE! From the guys that brought you such “(abridged)” classics as William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (abridged) and The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged) comes this fast, funny, physical fun for the whole family — a brand new theatrical treat! In this hilarious (and completely fictional) prequel to Hamlet, nothing is rotten in the state of Denmark! It’s joy and laughter and music and comedy as teenage Hamlet leaps into action to save his beloved nunnery from closing, enlisting his good friends Ophelia and the jester Yorick to help him put on a show! Along the way, Ophelia tries (and fails!) to pass her swimming test; Hamlet must avoid his practical joker father — the King! — who leaps out from behind plants pretending to be a ghost; Yorick teaches them all about showbiz, comedy, and skull-juggling; and they all wonder why Hamlet’s mother spends so much time at his uncle’s house! It’s Shakespeare meets Muppet Babies! If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show! May 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, 17th & 18th @ 7pm May 5th, 12th & 19th @ 2pm Studio Theater
