Hamlet - A Detective Comedy
2010's Play in a Week was: Hamlet – A Detective Comedy, a musical mystery based on Shakespeare’s Hamlet, written especially for YLT.
Throughout the week, the cast worked very hard on their characters, the script, and the singing & dancing, and gradually the play was transferred from the floor to the stage. By the Friday night, everything fell into place, and they produced a fantastic performance – well supported by a super audience who laughed and applauded throughout the show. Here are some comments by the children about their week:
"It's made me so much more confident! I wouldn't have believed I could act and sing in front of so many people"
"We worked so hard on characters and showing emotions"
"It's going to give me confidence doing other things in my life"
“It's been a taster of being on a professional stage with our theatre in Haslingfield"
