Reduced Shakespeare Company: Hamlet’s Big Adventure! (a prequel)
Nothing is rotten in the state of Denmark as young Hamlet leaps into action to save the nunnery with Ophelia and Yorick the jester! What could possibly go wrong? This hysterical prequel answers all the important questions, like: Why can’t Ophelia take swim lessons? Where the hell is Mrs. Polonius? And why does Hamlet’s mother spend so much time at his uncle’s house? What will young Hamlet grow up To Be? That is the question! Hamlet’s Big Adventure! (a prequel) is the Comedy of the Prince of Denmark! It’s a fast, funny, and physical extravaganza filled with scary ghosts, wee Scots, singing nuns, and a mysterious vassal in the castle! Martin and Tichenor (authors of William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play abridged and Pop-Up Shakespeare) take a deep dive into the greatest play ever written. What if Tom Stoppard wrote Muppet Babies? Come see Hamlet’s Big Adventure! (a prequel) and find out!
