2019 Camp Encore presents Hamlet at the Greenbelt Arts Center, July 10-11

HAMLET
“…hold, as twere, the mirror up to nature.”
by William Shakespeare

Join director Kate Magill Robinson and the Camp Encore troupe leaders as they tackle Shakespeare’s tragic masterpiece. Prince Hamlet, spurred on by his father’s vengeful ghost, takes a dark and winding path to discover whether the ghost’s shocking accusation of fratricide and usurpation is true. Hamlet’s stratagems roil the guilty conscience of his murderous uncle, confirming the ghost’s dreadful tale. Yet Hamlet hesitates to exact vengeance, as he grapples with the question of his own mortality and the price of truth. With a kingdom teetering in the balance, Hamlet’s quest overtakes him, ensnaring the innocent along with the guilty and, at the climax, bringing destruction to the royal house. At the end of the camp session, campers will present performances at the Greenbelt Arts Center. The performance schedule includes an evening performance on Thursday, July 11, at 7:00pm.

PERFORMANCES: Wednesday, July 10 at 1:00pm and Thursday, July 11 at 4:00pm and 7:00pm.

Performance Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Kay Theatre.

Hamlet is knee-deep in a personal and political quagmire. His father, the king, has been murdered by his uncle Claudius, who has hastily married his sister-in-law to assume the throne. Seeking to avenge his father’s murder, Hamlet sets off a chain of events resulting in death, destruction and a notable absence of justice.

But the politics and scandal in Shakespeare’s classic tragedy are nothing compared to the political discord and global uncertainty of today. This student-driven, devised theater piece, adapted from the Bard’s tale, imagines a new cast of greedy, divisive leaders—and a new generation to challenge them and liberate themselves.
