Local Theatre Company to Tour 'Hamlet'

"The play is a rollercoaster of emotion that will keep you spell bound from start to finish."

The Bay Colony Shakespeare Company is delighted to open the 2014 season with
Shakespeare’s immortal classic, “Hamlet." 

Directed by Braintree resident Ross MacDonald, the two-hour production is a swift, sweeping epic, a dramatic rollercoaster, set amidst a Royal Household 
and the vibrant and violent characters that inhabit it. 

A talented company of actors, blessed with exceptional verse speakers abilities, 
gifted musicians, and skilled stage combatants. A troupe embracing the traditions of travelling players as well as making the story relevant to a 21st century audience.

“Hamlet is a story of how far people are willing to go in order to achieve their 
ambitions, their duties, their loves,” says director MacDonald. “If the story of 'Hamlet' happened today, the event would be one of the greatest scandals of the age.”

The Company is delighted to have a fantastic cast for such a magnificent play. The role of Hamlet will be played by Ross Magnant, and also featuring Elizabeth Hartford, Tom Grenon, Meredith Stypinski, James Bocock, Erica Simpson, Cameron Gosselin and Alexander Joseph. Costumes are by Deirdre McCabe, sets are by E. Simpson and M. 

Stirling, and Sound Design is by M. Stypinski and C. Gosselin.
