Woodinville High School Theatre Company presents Hamlet February 5 thru 8
The award-winning Woodinville High School Theatre Company is excited to present its upcoming winter play, William Shakespeare’s masterpiece The Tragedy of Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark. The show runs February 5, 6, 7 and 8 at 7:00 p.m., in the Woodinville High School Theater.
Hamlet tells the story of the ghost of the King of Denmark who tells his son Hamlet to avenge his death by killing his uncle, the new King of Denmark. Hamlet feigns madness, contemplates life and death and then seeks revenge. The WHS Theatre Company has adapted the play to move the action forward at a contemporary pace, reset the show with the audiences seated on stage - thus closer to the action - and set the story in a modern context. Several key players have been cross-cast and the role of Hamlet has been split into his id, ego and superego. Come out and see this classic in a new light. Ticket are available online now at schoolsales.nsd.org.
