Hammered Hamlet (Drunk Shakespeare)

The Shakespeare Company gets tipsy for the High Performance Rodeo

Sure, you’ve seen Shakespeare before, but what happens when Hamlet has a little too much to drink before hitting the stage? Raise a glass to the Bard and toast the Hamlet you thought you knew as the Shakespeare Company brings Hammered Hamlet (Drunk Shakespeare) to this year’s High Performance Rodeo.

Considerably more fun than the Shakespeare you studied in school, the show’s spirited content also gives a certain liberty to the audience to become participants in the outlandish festivities.

Kicking off as the cast consumes enough shots to trip even the most well-trained tongue, watch as they juggle many balls to keep the story on track.

Hammered Hamlet (Drunk Shakespeare) runs January 23 to 26, 2019 at the Royal Canadian Legion #1 (116 7th Ave. SE).
