      Location: The Garden
      A murder most foul, demands revenge!
      A ghostly appearance sends Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark into a psychological tailspin. “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”

      Hamlet’s father has died and his mother married the new king, Hamlet’s uncle within two weeks. Now Hamlet’s father haunts him, demanding revenge for his death by the hands of Claudius, and Hamlet must decide if he should murder Claudius or accept the world as it has becoming. "To be or not to be, that is the question".

      This version of Hamlet is set against the backdrop of a Victorian industrial age, the characters are portrayed as visions of Jules Verne’s fiction. The steampunk genre is the Victorian’s optimistic view of the future and science. Claudius is moving the country away from the wars of his predecessor to peace. Hamlet’s revenge would surely end that path of peace.

      Shakespeare’s Garden takes place in the beautiful setting of The Nampa Civic Center’s Garden Stage. Patrons may bring blankets or chairs. (Chairs will also be available.) Patrons may also bring food to the performance.
