May 15 - May 17

at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center Directions

Hamlet, prince of Denmark, mourns the death of his father the king. When the ghost of the King appears to Hamlet and declares he was murdered by his brother Claudius, Hamlet begins an uncertain and dangerous journey in search of the truth, justice and revenge. Having earned a reputation for performing the works of Shakespeare with clarity and skill well beyond their years, the Young Company will collaborate with area professionals to bring Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy to life, continuing First Stage’s work as one of the premier classical training centers for young actors.
