Wednesday, Feb 26, 2020 - Sunday, Mar 15, 2020 at Ula Love Doughty Carousel Theatre

By William Shakespeare

“The greatest play in the English language.”

In the wake of his father’s death, Hamlet finds both his personal
and political worlds unimaginably changed. When his father’s ghost demands vengeance, Hamlet must decide: submit or resist. Accept or avenge.
Live or die.
