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.)
AND WE HAVE ROOM FOR MORE -
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."
