Shakespeare in the Park - "Hamlet"
July 19, 2009
The heralded teen troupe, Rebel Shakespeare Company, will perform a family-friendly 90-minute version of Hamlet. Audience members are encouraged to come early, bring chairs or blankets and a picnic. The sponsors will sell desserts and beverages to supplement your picnic baskets. This summer marks the first appearance by a teen troupe in Arlington's 9-year Shakespeare in the Park tradition. Rebel Shakespeare is one of the most highly regarded arts-in-education programs in the Boston area, and Hamlet’s cast of 14 teenagers, aged 15-18, will tell the story of Elsinore Castle with truth and purpose. Founded in 1990, Rebel Shakespeare is committed to offering theatre as a vehicle for self-understanding. Their mission is to create a space where children and teens can truly experience being themselves.
