HAMLET, PRINCE OF DENMARK

Directed by Brian J. Sivesind
September 29, October 3, 5, 7 at 7:30pm

"Conscience does make cowards of us all."

Overcome with grief in the wake of his father's death, Prince Hamlet's mourning is interrupted by the unpalatable marriage of his widow-mother to his father's brother. Hamlet's woe turns to vengeful anger when his father's ghost appears and reveals the uncle and newly-crowned King of Denmark to be the murderer. Prince Hamlet struggles to decide his next move: avenge his father's foul murder or succumb to the anguish of his circumstances.

The 33rd annual Kern Shakespeare Festival features the following performers: Colter Allison, Martin Arroyo, Brittany Beaver, Allan Bexton, Anthony Brooks, Stephen Bush, Josh Carruthers, Kara Coughenour, Decymbr' Frank, Cody Ganger, Kevin Ganger, Amy Hall, Josue Jimenez, Tevin Joslen, Bob Kempf, Crystal Lara, Ryan Lee, Nolan Long, Shelbe McClain, Randy Messick, Ethan Monge, Sammy Noriega, Daniel Ochoa, Brian Purcell, Cheyenne Reyes, Brian Sivesind, John Spitzer, Nancee Steiger, Jose Tenorio, Blanka Trujillo, Salvador Vidaurri, Carlos Vera, and Spirit Wright.
