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

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

Homeward Bound is a rollicking musical based on The Odyssey by Homer. It tells the parallel stories of history’s most resourceful couple, Odysseus and Penelope. In his quest to return home after the Trojan War, the wily Odysseus surmounts challenges on land, at sea, and in the underworld. Meanwhile, shrewd Penelope must outmaneuver the Ithacan patriarchy to preserve her position, her independence, and her home. In addition to the questing hero and the besieged heroine, this fast-moving story features a runaway prince, scheming suitors, enchantresses, monsters, cannibals, giants, ghosts, a magic veil, a deadly whirlpool, and a shipwreck. Join us and help tell the tale that has enthralled human beings for 2800 years: An epic adventure, a domestic comedy, and an enduring love story.

Tickets: $5; advance sales at 301-397-2208
