CCCT continues its “Shakespeare in the Summer” series with The Tragedy of Hamlet.  One of the most famous Shakespearean plays of all time, The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark is the story of Deception, Ambition, and Retribution. Hamlet learns that his father had not died from natural causes but was murdered by his father’s brother and now Hamlet’s Step-Father, Claudius. The story progresses through Hamlet seeking his revenge while leaving a wake of chaos in his path ultimately leading up to one of the most tragic endings to any play ever written. 

Auditions will consist of cold readings.  

If you are interested in auditioning for the role of Hamlet a 1 minute Shakespearean monologue is preferred. 

Everyone is encouraged to bring in a Shakespearean monologue if they would like but it is not required!
