The Lion Players of Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus will bring William Shakespeare’s "The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark" to the stage with matinee and evening performances April 5 to 8. Written around 1599, the plot, which is filled with treachery, revenge, spies and madness, revolves around a less-than-grieving widow’s “situation” that leads to an untimely and rash marriage; her pouting, insolent son; and a stalking, revenge-seeking ghost.
The Lion Players will go beyond traditional "Hamlet" performances, with startling set design and actors costumed in steampunk attire. Incorporated into their show will be modern music, a trademark of the Fayette campus acting troupe. Another unconventional twist on the production will be its shortened run-time of two hours, about half the usual duration.
