The Comedy of Hamlet… Kinda Sorta

A parody retelling of the original story with contemporary language and a comedic bite. Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, finds out that his uncle Claudius killed his father to obtain the throne, and plans revenge...kinda sorta.

The cast, full of comedy heavyweights, keeps the audience on their toes with fast-paced quipping and engaging antics.
