Hamlet @TheCultch ‏ !

Dear Dancers,
I don’t normally use this blog for non-dancey business, but I simply must support my nearest and dearest! Last night I saw Hamlet by Sandbox Theatre Productions. Our very own assistant Den Mama Tara Webster has been working on this show all year, alongside J-C Roy (who happens to be my significant other) 😉

If you don’t know Hamlet (!):
A father’s death and his mother’s hasty marriage provoke thoughts of murder and vengeance that push Hamlet’s mind to madness. His suspicions of foul play lead to dangerous manipulations of friends and family in order to uncover the supernatural truth behind it all. As questions consume him and his reality blurs he must make a choice and seal his fate once and for all.

But most importantly:
This play contains ghostly figures, devious manipulations, twisted realities, and lewd jokes and behaviour!” <— AKA FUN TIMES!

DJ Darfunkel’s personal review : This is not highbrow Shakespeare – this is REAL Shakespeare. Dark and sometimes disturbing, passionate yet somehow filled with humor and levity – rather like life itself. Set in something like the present, with modern dress & *exceptional* music choices. Ten marvelous actors play the full cast with some re-arrangements to the original text that only English nerds (and I say that lovingly ’cause I am one) will notice and appreciate for creativity.
I sincerely hope you make time for this wonderful production – support your local arts scene and (slightly indirectly) your friends at DDPP VanCity.
