Hamlet: The Play The Panto The Musical

Theatre Paradok presents: “Hamlet: The Play The Panto The Musical” written by Hannah McGregor.

Boy meets Girl, Boy meets Dead Dad Ghost, Boy plans Dead Dad Ghost revenge on Step-Father… it’s the story we all know and love! In this one-hour musical romp, we are guided through the story of Hamlet by our narrator Horatio, where we meet Dame Claudius, the annoyed Ophelia, and a carousel of characters, ghosts, and even some confused stragglers from some of Shakespeare’s other works… Join us for an unashamedly ridiculous retelling, complete with original songs performed by a talented troupe of actors.
