ACT (a community theatre) will host a reading of Shakespeare’s HAMLET on Monday, March 16, 2015, at 6:30 p.m. in the Southport Room of the Stratford Town Centre, 234 Shakespeare Drive, Stratford. Those attending will be invited to take turns reading various parts from the shortened script which will be used in ACT’s late summer production.
The director of the show, Terry Pratt, adapted the script to better meet the challenges of staging the play’s scenes in various locations around Robert Cotton Park. Pratt will be present at the reading to explain his vision for the show, and to coach readers on delivering the Bard’s lines.
Also attending will be Noah Nazim,who has been cast as Hamlet. Other auditions will be held at the end of March.
Admission to Read-along Hamlet is $2 to cover the cost of copying scripts and is free for ACT members. ACT memberships will be available at the door, as will more information about the upcoming production.
Hamlet will be staged at 4:00 pm on August 28 and 29 and September 5-7, 2015. For further information on the reading, or on the upcoming production, contact the producer, Bunty Albert: firstname.lastname@example.org. or leave a comment on this blog.
