Hamlet Project Durham Actors, 9/17/16

We held our first class of the five-year Hamlet Project Durham today - already we can tell you who all the main characters are in our play - we can tell you the story - we know it's a tragedy - we've performed some lines in characters and improvised Hamlet characters waiting for a bus - and we've decided to create our own comic version of the play for performance - maybe by the end of this year! 

To point out the obvious - we have an excited, sharp and involved startup group of actors aged 8 - 12 who will perform William Shakespeare's masterwork, "Hamlet," in spring 2020 (both at home and on tour.)


By the end of the year we intend to be able to cast the play twice - involving 20+ multi-racial, multi-ethnic young actors in a commitment to creating a professional quality, moving, exciting, insightful performance of "Hamlet."
