About the event

For our second date night of the year, we bring your our professional production of William Shakespeare's Hamlet in an outdoor performance! So, bring your lawn chair and your sweetheart and enjoy Shakespeare under the stars!

Last year we brought you As You Like It, emphasizing the necessity of community, vitality of returning to right order as well as the insufficiency of virtual interactions. We long for community because we belong to each other. This year, we are producing Hamlet, because in this powerful tragedy we have to face the familiar and uncomfortable position of decision making with unstable information, seemingly all bad options and the reality of suffering. Here we must still make a decision about what to do, and it is here that intentional action, mercy and justice painfully emerge through our earthen vessel’d selves, imperfect and striving to be better.

These musings inspired the choice for setting our Hamlet in 1930’s Germany, wherein the messy world of medieval Denmark amidst the backdrop of grief and power struggles muddy the human vision of justice. We are reminded that what we choose matters, not only to us but to those around us.
