Following up from their explosive performances on and off the stage last year, Hamlet the Hip-Hopera is back and looking for new students to add their talents to the mix and join their cast. The play itself ”puts a modern, still-reverent remix on the Bard’s classic. The core of the text remains intact (as does its setting), but its means of communication – rap battles, dueling verses, slam poetry – are entirely new.”
Directed by John-Michael Sequeira, A12, with the musical direction of Tucker Delaney-Winn, A12, the Hip-Hopera is an independent production featuring performers from the greater Boston area with the help of the Tufts Drama Department. The cast hopes to compete at the regional level of the American College Theater Festival in Cape Cod, MA.
