ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD/15 MINUTE HAMLET
Two sides of the same “Hamlet”!
After a hugely successful inaugural season, klpac's Theatre for Young People (T4YP) is entering its 2nd year. The 2009 season is sponsored by YTL Corporation.
Armed with an all-new ensemble, Chris Ling is taking on one of Tom Stoppard's most famous works – “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead”. The first fully-staged production of the season will feature all fifteen members of the newly-formed ensemble.
Tom Stoppard's “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead” is a hilarious comedy that centres on two bewildered minor characters from Shakespeare's tragic tale of Hamlet. They are thrust centre stage and given the chance to finally take lead roles in this fabulously inventive take on Hamlet. But Rosencrantz and Guildenstern do so in a world where reality and illusion intermingle, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end. Unaware of the roles in the much bigger picture of Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern get themselves into hilarious situations. Although the play is primarily a comedy, they constantly stumble upon philosophical truths in the midst of the ludicrous ramblings.
As an opening, be entertained with a humorous crash course on Shakespeare’s works. A pre-show appetizer entitled The Fifteen-Minute Hamlet directed by Nicole-Ann Thomas will be in play. This blitz version of Hamlet by Tom Stoppard brings together all the famous lines and scenes from the play.
Join the T4YP troupe on their first venture on stage as they bring you the misadventures and funny anecdotes of these characters.
