Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark A Badaptation of the Bard by The Listies
Cleveland Street Corner City Road, Chippendale, NSW, 2008, Australia
7th July 2018 to 22nd July 2018
After winning over everyone who came to see it at Sydney Theatre Company in 2016, this very cheeky, very clever, utterly irreverent riff on Hamlet – made especially for children – is back for a return season at the Seymour Centre. The Listies, maestros of children’s entertainment, have pulled apart Shakespeare’s classic and glued it back together with hilarious costumes, loads of silliness and plenty of interactivity. Hamlet is already full of things kids love in a good story: ghosts, castles, sword fights, bodily fluids and spooky stuff. Add to the mix some supersonic gags and expertly timed stage magic unlike anything kids have seen before and you have a brilliantly disguised Shakespearean tragedy for everyone aged five and over.
