THE TRAGEDY OF HAMLET: PRINCE OF SKIDMARK A BADAPTATION OF THE BARD

Sydney Theatre Company

THE

"The perfect way to introduce a young person to the magic and chaos of theatre"
Arts Hub

The rock stars of the children’s comedy circuit, The Listies, tackle the classics with this very cheeky, very clever, utterly irreverent riff on Hamlet. These maestros of mayhem have pulled apart Shakespeare’s classic, and glued it back together with hilarious costumes, loads of silliness and plenty of interactivity.

Hamlet is already full of things kids love in a good story: ghosts, castles, sword fights, bodily fluids and spooky stuff. Add to the mix some super-sonic gags and expertly timed stage magic, and you have a brilliantly disguised Shakespearean tragedy for everyone aged five and over.
And that’s not all… expect bonus pillow fights, pirates, ninjas and a bunch of other hilarious stuff as The Listies take kids and their adults on a fun-filled hour of theatre. The only thing we can be sure of is that everyone dies at the end – including the audience!
