Unfortunately, we have discovered several positive Covid cases in our Hamlet cast. For the health and safety of our artists and audiences, we have made the incredibly hard decision to cancel all remaining performances of Hamlet. We did look at the cast’s availability for the rest of the summer, but unfortunately there isn’t a viable time for everyone to return. If you have tickets for any of these performances, our staff will be contacting you with exchange and refund options. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience, but look forward to being able to welcome you back to the theater soon!
Following the death of his father, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, returns home to find his uncle now occupies the throne and the queen’s bed. Spurred by the ghost of his father and surrounded by spies, Hamlet must choose between moral integrity and vengeance.
Antaeus requires all audiences and staff to wear face masks at all matinee performances: Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm. Masks are recommended at all other times.
