About the Program

“For there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Hamlet

Enjoy a week of taking Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy and converting it into a comedy. 

The ghost of the King of Denmark tells his son Hamlet to avenge his murder by killing the new king, Hamlet's uncle, who in turn devises plots to kill Hamlet. What if they didn’t try to kill each other? What if they tried to played practical jokes on each other instead? Shakespeare’s tragedy already utilises comedy in the first half of the play to make the impending tragedy even more tragic. Join us in exploring the funny bits, turning the tragic on its head and creating a unique and original performance for friends and family.

Our school holiday workshops are the perfect introduction to Shakespeare, full of fun drama games, scene studies and practical learning, concluding with a showcase for friends and family.

Themes explored:

Comedy v Tragedy

Black Comedy

Life v Death

Revenge

We work with the best words, best characters and the best stories. We work with the best teachers and their passion, expertise and years of experience brings out the best in others. It’s life education at its best.
