a Company of Fools – Hamlet
Thursday July 13 at 7:00pm
Please note: Hamlet at the MERA Schoolhouse has been CANCELLED due to tornado warnings. We look forward to welcoming the Fools back to MERA another time!
Mark your calendars! a Company of Fools is coming to the Schoolhouse to present Hamlet on July 13th at 7pm! It is a long standing tradition that the fools visit us every summer. Bring your blankets and chairs to set the scene for a night of theatre.
Chili will be available before the show for $10. Please arrive early to enjoy dinner before the show.
About the Show:
Returning home to attend her father’s funeral, Hamlet discovers that another ceremony has already taken place: the marriage of her mother to her uncle. That’s right, her dead father’s brother. When Hamlet is visited by her father’s ghost demanding that she avenge his murder, Hamlet begins to wonder – is it she who has gone mad or everyone around her?
Join the Fools this summer as we delve into the depths of the human experience and have a few laughs along the way. Whether you’re a Shakespeare nerd or this is your first foray with the Bard since high school, our Foolish take on Hamlet has something for everyone.
Run Time: A cool 90-minutes
