 All performances are at 8 pm on the campus of Middlesex Community College in Middletown. 

Audiences are encouraged to arrive early, bring lawn chairs or blankets, and enjoy a picnic and a play in the beautiful Cedar Grove overlooking the Connecticut River Valley.

This two hour production of Hamlet explores one's need to make choices and take action when faced with a corrupt government. It is recommended for all ages; the two hour cut and physical action bring the classic tragedy to life in a way that is immediate and riveting.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for kids. July 12 is a “Pay-What-You-Can” preview. 

Middlesex Community College is located at 100 Training Hill Road, Middletown, CT.
