- ‘Hamlet’ at Baltimore Shakespeare Factory.
Performance Dates: April 12 – May 5, 2019, at The Great Hall Theater at St. Mary’s Community Center. Click here for more information and tickets.
Synopsis: Considered by many to be the greatest play ever written, Hamlet is everything Shakespeare wrote distilled to a single play. Funny, thrilling, and heartbreaking, Hamlet is a tour de force. It has represented many things to many people, and stands as shorthand for “Theatre.” Strip away the pretense, though, and what’s left is still a masterpiece. We present it in original pronunciation, as audiences first heard it.

The winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, this beloved book and score features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” and “Tomorrow.” A Broadway classic that inspires its audiences to never give up hope, Annie is a delightful theater experience for the entire family.
