Theatre Calgary’s Production of Shakespeare by the Bow: Hamlet, takes a small hiatus from Prince’s Island Park to make room for the Calgary Folk Festival and moves to St. Patrick’s Island for the week.
Hamlet – A Ghost Story, will transport you back in time to see into the lives of the first family of Denmark and reimagine Shakespeare’s most famous play. See what is ‘Rotten in the State of Denmark’ and understand how the original ghost story was brought to life.
“St. Patrick’s Island is a regional park space that we have worked very hard to revitalize. It’s incredibly important for us to program meaningful experiences for all Calgarians, and having these emerging artists stage an original event is a unique way for us to showcase the island,” said Susan Veres, Senior Vice President, Strategy & Business Development for the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation.
There are only six shows, running Tuesday, July 19 to Sunday, July 24 at 9:30 pm nightly. No need to buy tickets for the show, just arrive early to grab a seat and bring a blanket with you if you’d like. The show runs on donations, so pay what you’d like when the collection hat makes it’s way through the crowd.
