To Our Patrons:

Your safety and health, as well as the safety and health of our performers is something that we take very seriously. We have closely been following all updates regarding COVID-19, and it is with a heavy heart that we have made the difficult decision that last night, Friday March 13 was the last performance of Hamlet here at STC.

If you had tickets to any of the remaining performances, the box office will be reaching out to you in the coming days to discuss your options with you.

Thank you for your support of STC and we look forward to seeing you at the theatre in the future.


As Shakespeare’s most popular play—both during his own Elizabethan era and today—this tragedy concerns Prince Hamlet and his struggle to exact revenge. Hamlet’s father, the King of Denmark, has been murdered by his uncle, Claudius. Claudius has now married the leading lady of Denmark Hamlet’s mother, the Queen—and seized the throne. In his process of vengeance, Hamlet grapples with themes of death, honor, corruption, and a host of other existential questions in this, one of the crown jewels of world literature.

“If you only see one play this month, perhaps even this year, this play’s the thing.” – Sacramento News & Review

“Carrying a show of Hamlet’s breadth of difficulty is no easy feat, and I highly expect Hopps to be a front-runner in the 2020 BroadwayWorld Awards for this performance.” – BroadwayWorld
