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

And just one day to do it.

Madison Shakespeare Company took 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 Original Practice.

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

Featured 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.
