Raised by 98 people in 5 months
RESERVE SEATS TODAY: Hamlet Reservations 


In August 2019 The Theater at Woodshill  will produce the world's most-exalted play: 

THE TRAGEDY OF HAMLET, PRINCE OF DENMARK
by William Shakespeare

August 17-18th, 20-25th, 2019 | Theater at Woodshill | 9755 Sessions Road, Sauquoit, NY.

HAMLET is the second installment of our three-season TURN OF THE CENTURY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL (see below). This ecstatic, sublime, terrifying revenge drama pushes tragic theater to the brink of what is possible.  A vicious meditation on vengeance and political decay, HAMLET brings a terrible reckoning to the state of Denmark, a proxy for a state of decadence and abasement.

On the heels of two fantastic summers, this year we're producing a full week of off-script performances .

FROM HAMLET:
"To be, or not to be, that is the question." 
-Hamlet

"This above all: to thine own self be true."  
-Polonius

"Something is rotten in the state of Denmark." 
-Marcellus

"O God, I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space."
-Hamlet

WHERE THE FUNDS ARE GOING
-Cast & crew costs: 3 weeks time for 8-10 professional theater and television actors from New York City (~$10,000)
-Room and board (~$4,500)

THE THEATER AT WOODSHILL
The Theater at Woodshill  is a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization whose mission is to create a permanent home for the works of William Shakespeare on a beautiful farm in Central New York. We believe that upstate communities deserve local, affordable access to world-class productions of Shakespeare and other great classical dramatists. To achieve this goal we have built company of actors, directors, designers, producers, and dramaturgs, professional and non-professional alike, working in collaboration. We call this combined cultural community CNY + NYC.
 
Along with our commitment to the works of Shakespeare, The Theater at Woodshill is focused on providing educational opportunities for its community through workshops in acting, design, production, and dramaturgy. We are devoted to performing the Bard’s great works in repertory with other classics of the stage, both ancient and modern alike.
