About the Interlochen Shakespeare Festival
The Interlochen Shakespeare Festival draws on the unique resources of the Interlochen Center for the Arts to present bold and innovative interpretations of the classics. Founded in 2008 and led by artistic director William Church, a core ensemble of Interlochen faculty, staff and alumni commits itself to engaging northwest Michigan audiences through professional theatre that celebrates the Shakespearean imagination.
The Interlochen Shakespeare Festival proudly presents “Hamlet” and electrifies the Upton-Morley Pavilion* with a tale of treachery, intrigue and obsession. Written at the height of Shakespeare's career, “Hamlet” is renowned for its exquisite poetry, spellbinding plot and universal themes of morality and mortality. Join us as we delve into a world of murder, melancholy and madness in this powerful story of devotion and revenge.
Performances will be held June 27-29 and July 3, 5 and 6 at 8 p.m. in the Upton-Morley Pavilion. Tickets are available starting Friday, April 19 at 9 a.m. and can be obtained by visiting tickets.interlochen.org or by calling the Interlochen Box Office at 800.681.5920.
