SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF DENMARK

"To see or not to see? - THAT is the question!"

Prince Hamlet has returned home to attend his father's funeral... and his mother's sudden marriage to his Uncle Claudius, who has now become king! So when Hamlet meets the ghost of his dead father, he sets out upon a mysterious story of murder, intrigue and revenge - all the time trying to prove once and for all that his uncle is the murderer.

Shakespeare 4 Kidz bring their unique musical storytelling style to the most famous Shakespeare play of them all.

Perfect for schools

For junior and primary schools this is the opportunity to introduce your students to the most famous play ever written. The original 4 1/2-hour original text version has been condensed by Chenery & Gimblett into a 2-hour musical theatre show whilst remaining an authentic re-telling of the original story. From the first sighting of the Ghost of Old Hamlet on the battlements of Elsinore Castle to the final dramatic sword-fight - all the famous elements of HAMLET remain.

Secondary school students of all ability levels will find S4K's clear, powerful and entertaining story-telling style a highly useful introduction to the story and an ideal first stepping stone to further study of the original play.
