Festival favourite Oddsocks Productions return to Harrogate with yet another high-energy, feel-good family theatre show. Pack your picnic and join the crazy theatre troupe for a festival of music, magic and mayhem as they bring Hamlet The Comedy to the beautiful grounds of Harlow Carr.
Hamlet The Comedy finds the eponymous royal student returning home for the summer holidays to find something rotten in the state of Denmark and it’s more than just the bag of dirty washing! Mum’s married Uncle Claudius and Dad’s dishing the dirt from his grave – it’s enough to make a teenager mad! Things will never be the same again in the Hamlet household…
Shakespeare’s famous tragedy is performed as you’ve never seen before with lots of laughs, music and memorable moments.
Doors open at 6.30pm for Friends of the Festival and RHS Card Holders.
General admission from 6.45pm.
This is an outdoor event, please dress appropriately for the British weather! Feel free to bring your own picnics, rugs and deckchairs to make the most of the event.
“Outrageously funny, a joy, with neatly-engineered slapstick”
“Oddsocks excels in an entertaining show which succeeds as both farce and a perfect introduction to Shakespeare.”
