Performances start February 1st!

Come experience Shakespeare’s sublimely haunting tale of intrigue, treachery and revenge and Stoppard’s hilarious take on the same play, presented in reparatory with the same cast. Evansville Shakespeare Players join forces with Last Minute Productions and D'Alto Studio of Performing Arts to present this unique entertainment experience!

Evansville Shakespeare Players will be presenting “Hamlet,” the tragedy of young Hamlet, a Danish prince mourning the loss of his father when he discovers that his mother has wed his uncle. Nearing madness, Hamlet must uncover the truth.

Last Minute Productions will be presenting “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, “ by Tom Stoppard. In this delightful play, two minor characters from “Hamlet” take center stage to show the audience their side of the story. Stoppard’s characteristic wordplay takes center stage in this battle of wits showing an oft times comedic view of the word.

Join Evansville Shakespeare Players and Last Minute Productions as they tell the tale from two very different points of view!

I know some people think "Ew, Shakespeare? BOORRRING." But speaking as a Shakespeare nerd and actor in Hamlet, let me tell you: This show? SO GOOD. It's not how some people perceive Shakespeare. Like you're watching a play in another language, and you're confused, and little bit bored. (I know that feeling. Some people just don't know how to do Shakespeare.) But these people? Are not those people. We know Shakespeare. We know how it's supposed to be done. And let me tell you; you're going to understand exactly what is going on, and you're going to feel some feels with Hamlet.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, on the other hand, is not a Shakespeare play, but is done in the style of Shakespeare and is the perfect palate cleanser for the tragedy that is Hamlet.

You'll laugh and you'll cry in both shows, gauranteed. (I know! Laughter??? In HAMLET?? UNHEARD OF!)
