The Prince of Denmark has a lot of work to do.

And just one day to do it.

Madison Shakespeare Company takes on the legendary Hamlet with a major twist: actors get all the time they need with their scripts, but just a few short hours to rehearse. Inspired by concepts like Bootleg Shakespeare and Back Room Shakespeare, along with the original practice of The King’s Men, Sudden Shakespeare pushes the entire creative team to their limits.

Sudden Shakespeare: Hamlet performs just one night only, Saturday February 29 2020 at 7:30 PM on the Bartell Theatre Drury Stage.

Tickets on sale now.

Featuring Joshua Woolfolk as Hamlet, Sarah Z. Johnson as Gertrude, Tia Tanzer as Laertes, Patrick O’Hara as Claudius, Benjamin Olneck-Brown as Horatio, Sam D. White as the Ghost, Sara Kraft as Polonius, and Kaliea Saplan as Ophelia.

Directed by Lennox Forrester.

A Madison Theatre Guild co-production.
