K-State theatre closes out spring semester with Hamlet

By The Mercury

For their final production of the semester, Kansas State University theater students will perform a tale of greed, revenge, insanity, self-reflection and rage.

One of William Shakespeare’s most popular and oft quoted plays, “Hamlet” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. April 19-21 and April 26-28, with a matinee at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, April 29.

All performances will be in Nichols Theater.

Two months have passed since the death of King Hamlet, and upon his return from studying abroad, young Prince Hamlet has found that his mother has already locked herself in matrimony with his uncle, the very man who murdered his father.

In this classic tragedy, Hamlet ponders the ever-daunting question, “To be or not to be?”

Tickets for “Hamlet” cost $8 to $14, with a variety of discounts available for university students, seniors and military families.

They can be purchased at the McCain Auditorium box office from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or by calling 785-532-6428 during box office hours.
