On Stage! Hamlet. One Hour. The Bard.

Thanks too SF Shakespeare Festival touring troupe, Shakespeare On Tour, for a free public one-hour performance of Shakespeare’s, “Hamlet.” 

Sunday, February 21, 2016 @ 2 pm. Doors Open, 1:30. Performance followed by brief Q&A and light refreshments.

Shakespeare’s tale of a prince whose royal family is disrupted by revenge. Set in the court of Denmark, this murder mystery features Shakespeare’s most famous soliloquy, ‘to be or not to be’ and other familiar text that will be readily recognized.

This is the performance that the Shakes take into the schools! We are grateful to the Shakes for the discount on their performance fee, and to the generosity of the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association for sponsoring this event alongside the Friends and the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.

The San Francisco Shakespeare Festival is a 32-year old local nonprofit organization whose mission is to share Shakespeare with the community. Best known for Free Shakespeare in the Park and Bay Area Shakespeare Camps, its Shakespeare on Tour program performs in over 150 schools statewide each year.

See below pics from their fabulous performance of Julius Caesar on the Ides of March, 2014. An exciting tale of politics and corruption in ancient Rome. Contains Mark Antony’s stirring and powerful “Friends, Romans, countrymen” speech and Brutus’ struggle with his conscience and thrilling swordplay.

It makes the Friends all the more excited about our recent funding for theatrical lighting in the Conservatory. Stay tuned for future evening theater performances.
