Students team up with The Studio at SBTS to bring this classic to the screen

This production of Hamlet features secondary students from across the Halifax Regional Centre for Education. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic making it impossible for us to bring everyone together in person, the student actors committed to creating the project in an online format, rehearsing and recording the play in a series of virtual meets.

This video presentation of Hamlet is the result of countless hours of volunteer time on the part of our students under the guidance and direction of Shakespeare by the Sea’s Drew Douris-O’Hara, and a technical team of recent Fountain School of Performing Arts (Dalhousie University) graduates.

This is an abridged version of Hamlet, which has been edited for time. A copy of the script for classroom use is available here.
