Shakespeare’s Classic Tragedy: Hamlet
Spreckels Performing Arts Center - Rohnert Park
More than 400 years ago, William Shakespeare sat down to compose Hamlet for the theatre troupe “The Lord Chamberlain’s Men,” never suspecting he was about to pen what would become widely considered the greatest work of drama in the English language … a play so rich in content, one discovers something new with each viewing. Prince Hamlet’s dilemma is timeless. His story grapples with love, betrayal, family ties, murder, vengeance, sanity and insanity and, ultimately, the question of whether or not life is worth the struggle … to be or not to be. Bay Area favorite Keith Baker plays the title role. Directed by Sheri Lee Miller, with an original soundscape by Nancy Hayashibara, come see Hamlet at Spreckels Performing Arts Center in Rohnert Park.
