chronically contemplative prince takes center stage in this exciting
exploration of the secrets, sins, and psychoses of the Danish
court. The series begins with Shakespeare’s Hamlet: Prince of
Denmark, where participants will unpack the thrills and

goes on to explore compelling derivations, including Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz

Claudius, as well as other notable works. All scripts and
materials are included with the registration fee.
