Youth Performance Program presents:
Hamlet Goes to HollywoodBy: Dwayne Yancey
Wednesday, May 17 at 7 PM
Thursday, May 18 at 7 PM
Sunday, May 21 at 2 PM
LOCATION: Sabes JCC
Determined to make Hamlet a Hollywood blockbuster, a director elicits the help of Shakespeare to make a few “minor” changes to the script. Thinking the original script is trite and cliché, the director orders the cast to perform Hamlet as a zombie movie, a spy thriller, a puppet show, a science fiction movie, a home improvement show, a feminist movie, a western, a police drama, a vaudevillian/juggling show, a Broadway musical, an opera, and even a kung fu action flick. As the director swaps costumes and characters, chaos on the set intensifies when Ophelia insists on brandishing a sword, Laertes vies for a bigger part, and Shakespeare transforms himself into a rapper! This play is a fun way to introduce the story of Hamlet to students, and the even audience can join in on the fun!
