Shakespeare Does Steampunk with this Retelling of Hamlet

Experience the talents of William Shakespeare like never before with a special Steampunk-themed rendition of Hamlet! Performing now at the Sheldon Vexler Theatre, this unique take on an iconic tale revisits Shakespeare’s world through the perspective of alternate history.

Hamlet is one of the most easily recognized plays of the English Language, setting the gold standard of tragic storytelling. Following a Danish Prince who is caught between thought and action as his uncle assumes the throne left vacant by his murdered father, the play has wowed audiences for over four centuries.

But in this new production at the Sheldon Vexler Theatre, the timeless play gets a whole new makeover that adds a fresh and stylized flair to the story you know and love. Set in an alternative Victorian era on board a steam airship, this retelling has a steampunk theme with innovative costumes, inventive set design, and a whimsical atmosphere that is perfect for Shakespeare’s masterpiece. It’s a one-of-a-kind show, so make sure you check out Hamlet at the Sheldon Vexler Theatre!
