HAMLET FOR HILTON (article first published : 2007-01-28)

The Actors Co-operative, in association with The Playhouse Company, presents eight day time performances of this year’s government school matric setwork Hamlet at the Hilton College Theatre.

For the past seven years, this popular and award-winning company has presented vibrant stagings of Shakespeare’s work to grade 12 learners. Learners and teachers attending the productions commented on the fact that seeing the plays staged in their proper context, live and in the comfort of a fully-equipped professional theatre, was the greatest aid to understanding the complexities of their setwork.

This year’s brand new presentation of Hamlet with an exciting and talented cast will be no exception. The production will retain the Renaissance silhouette by blending neo-Romantic with flower-power, with the young men clad in cotton and jeans and the young women in long Indian print frocks.

All set for its two month season, Hamlet will preview in Port Shepstone, Richards Bay and Ladysmith, and will premier at the Hilton College Theatre before settling in for a long run at the Playhouse in February and March.

Performances at Hilton College Theatre on February 8, 9, 12 and 13 at 09h00 and 12h00 daily. Tickets R35 (one teacher free accompanying 30 learners). All bookings and enquiries on 033 383 0126 (0830 – 16h00 weekdays) or email theatre@hiltoncollege.com
