By William Shakespeare
Directed by Paula Galloway
"Our wills and fates do so contrary run
That our devices still are overthrown;
our thoughts are ours, their ends none of our own."
July 9-27, 2001
For the second installment of the 2001 summer season, HSC revived one of its most successful past shows, for another summer treatment. The familiar story of the Danish prince (Jon Ciccarelli) who life to torn upside down by his father's death, mother's (Marlyne Afflack) marriage to his uncle (Charles J. Roby) and the revelation that he is his brother's killer. The situation complicated by his close school friends Rosencrantz (Simone Elliot) and Guildenstern (Marla Yost) being brought in to keep an eye on him and effectively work for Hamlet's enemy And finally the story of Hamlet's love interrupted with the Ophelia (Cheryl Rossillo) by circumstances out of their control. This thought provoking, soul searching drama that is arguably Shakespeare's greatest work goes beyond the usual framework of what was known as the revenge tragedy. Involving, not just the notion that deeds need to be acted on but why does it need to be done. Paula Galloway, who had previously appeared as Beatrice in 2000's Much Ado About Nothing, helmed this production.
