The Nashville Shakespeare Festival- Winter 2018

The Nashville Shakespeare Festival's 30th Anniversary Season kicks off with Hamlet, Shakespeare’s most famous work.

Artistic Director Denice Hicks directs this intimate production that takes you on a journey into the minds and hearts of the royal family of Denmark in their darkest time. Prince Hamlet, played by the magnetic Sam Ashdown, is torn between two unbearable situations: either living with his father's murderer or committing murder himself.

Directed by Denice Hicks
Original music by Natalie Bell and Jack Kingsley
Costume Design by Jessica Mueller
Set Design/Projections by Sam Lowry
Lighting Design by Anne Willingham
Fight Choreography by David Wilkerson
