They’ve added zombies, ninjas and aliens to this Shakespearean classic

King Hamlet is dead, but classic theatre for kids isn’t. This cheeky satirising of Hamlet tells the tragic tale with plenty of spunk, crazy costumes, interactivity and kid-friendly lingo.

In the return season to the Seymour Centre and performances at Parramatta's Riverside Theatres, Hamlet’s haunted kingdom will come to life with stage magic, perfectly timed gags and all the gruesome bits of Shakespeare little rascals are bound to love – ghosts, poison, sword fights and bodily fluids. And just to mix it up, they’re throwing pirates, zombies, ninjas and aliens into the one-hour performance. Somehow.

The Listies – the masterminds behind this popular adaptation – have a knack for bringing together the crude and clever. They’ve created a performance that kids aged five and over will enjoy along with their parents.
