| Open: 11/07/12 Close: 11/11/12 - Beckmann Theatre @ American Theater Of A
C.A.G.E. Theatre Company is proud to present an abridged version of The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. Michae Rehse stars as Hamlet, a young man returning for his father's funeral, only to find his mother, Queen Gertrude (Emily Frail), marrying his smooth yet seemingly treacherous uncle Claudius (Fernando Lamberty). A chance meeting with supernatural elements and possible madness drive him to ponder the ultimate revenge - regicide. But has Hamlet really gone mad? Or is there a deeper side to his inner psyche?
And...how does his journey affect his love Ophelia (Melissa Meli), her brother Laertes (Sean Ward) and father Polonius (Thomas Cox), Hamlet's best friends Horatio (Michael Hagins), Rosencrantz and Guildenstern (Kristen Penner and Lorelai McKenzie)? And why is the gravedigger (Laura Grayson) lurking around happily singing?

The C.A.G.E. Theatre, in conjunction with The Looking Glass Space Grant Program presents The Tempest. The final of work and possible retirement of William Shakespeare is co-directed by Monica Alia and Michael Hagins. The Tempest, set to the concept of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean, is the story of Prospero (Michael Hagins), the true Duke of Milan, who was exiled with his daughter Miranda (Rebecca Overholt) to a remote island, and has lived there for 12 years with the spirit Ariel (Molly Gilman) and the half sea monster Caliban (Daniel Largo). Attempting to put the past wrongs to rest and help Miranda to a future, Prospero raises a storm to shipwreck the King of Naples (Thomas Cox) and his party which includes Prospero's evil brother and the usurping Duke of Milan Antonio (Danny Sauls). Interested more in new beginnings than a vengeful end, Prospero relishes an impending marriage for Miranda, keeping his old enemies alive and setting free his loyal servant Ariel. There are some mature themes in the play, but nothing demeaning or controversial, which makes the show safe and family-friendly. The show runs approximately 2 hours including a 10 minute intermission.
