The National Youth Theatre presents a season at the Ambassadors Theatre and among the productions appearing as part of it is this stunning prequel to Shakespeare’s classic, Hamlet, entitled Prince Of Denmark.
The show will naturally give us a new insight into the famous tragedy penned by Shakespeare over four centuries ago. Prince Of Denmark takes place ten years beforehand with a teenage Hamlet appearing alongside other teenager versions of famous characters – Ophelia and Laertes – as they rebel against their parents’ royal expectations.
The show runs at the Ambassadors Theatre – the ongoing home of Stomp – from September 2013 with Anthony Banks directing the company of performers that range from Laurence Baker to Simon Lennon and Daisy Whalley. The Company will also be presenting Romeo & Juliet as part of the season, with Paul Roseby directing, and a revival of their 2008 hit Tory Boyz, with Thomas Hescott directing. It will undoubtedly be a great way of introducing younger audiences to the theatre whilst also glimpsing some possible future stars.
Whether you are a fan of Hamlet, in which the famous Danish Prince attempts to avenge the death of his father at the hands of his Uncle Claudius, then Prince Of Denmark will be an unbeatable way of returning to these characters at an earlier point in their lives and seeing Shakespeare’s work from a new angle.
Prince Of Denmark is at the Ambassadors Theatre from Monday 23rd September 2013.
