Actors Ensemble starts off it’s 6th consecutive year of performances in the beautiful John Hinkel Park Amphitheatre (and our 61st year overall) with William Shakespeare’s greatest play, “Hamlet”, presented in an accessible 105 minute version adapted from a version originally produced for radio by the BBC.

Hamlet at Hinkel Performed in 2 acts with an intermission (food available), the role of Hamlet itself will be shared by all the cast members, at times singly, at times as part of a chorus, in a manner reminiscent of the acclaimed adaption of Sophocles’ tragedy, “The Gospel at Colonus”.
