CAMDEN, NJ — William Shakespeare's rueful prince will take the stage in Rutgers-Camden's production of “Hamlet” — set for its 2020 premiere on Feb. 12.
“It's a play of deep sadness and outrage, but also of humanity and friendship,” said Director Damon Bonetti, a three-time Barrymore Award nominee. “Nothing is what it seems, and over the course of the play, layers of mistrust get peeled away to the terrible truths reckoned at the end.”
The production, which continues the theater's 2019-20 season, runs from Feb 12 to Feb 16 at the Walter K. Gordon Theater on the Rutgers–Camden campus at 314 Linden St.
Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday, with a matinée performance at 2 p.m. on Sunday. There will also be a high school matinée performance at 10 a.m. on Feb 13.
“Hamlet” will feature senior theater major Brittany Onukwugha of Willingboro in the title role.
Bonetti, who is also the co-founding artistic director of the Philadelphia Artists’ Collective, has performed or directed at nearby theaters including the Walnut Street Theatre, Philadelphia Theatre Company, and Lantern Theatre Company.
Tickets for the show cost $15 for general admission, $10 for faculty, staff, and alumni, and $8 for students.
They can be purchased in advance at the Impact Booth in the Campus Center, or by calling (856) 225-6211. To learn more about the production click here.
