Tips from past Producers


Have fun with this one and make it work for you! We used the suggestion to write profiles for each date and we introduced each Shakespeare character in front of the curtain as the dating-profiles were read. We did use a dagger on a fishing pole to create the "imaginary" dagger. It made for some good laughs. We also had Puck bring out a skull to Hamlet to talk to as his "ghost" father. Also, in Hamlet's Date, we put chairs behind Kate and Hamlet and had the witches watch the play also, to give it more of a theater scene.
