Reduced Shakespeare Company's Hamlet's Big Adventure (a prequel)
In this hilarious (and completely fictional) prequel to Hamlet, nothing is rotten in the state of Denmark. There’s laughter and joy and music and more laughter as teenage Hamlet leaps into action to save his beloved nunnery from closing. Enlisting his good buds Ophelia and the jester Yorick, Hamlet and friends put on a show – what could possibly go wrong? Along the way, Ophelia tries (and fails!) to pass her swim test and Hamlet must avoid his practical joker father, the King, who has a tendency to leap out from behind house plants pretending to be a ghost. Is it Shakespeare meets the Muppet Babies? Might be or might not be. If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!
