The prince of Denmark returns home from school to find his family life in ruins-his father dead, his mother remarried and his uncle (now stepfather) ruling the country. When his father's ghost appears with dire announcements, Hamlet struggles to redefine his life and find his way forward. This is the first time in 32 years that National Players has produced Shakespeare's most seminal play. Continuing the legacy of America's longest-running touring company, National Players travels to all corners of the country presenting classic plays reimagined in invigorating ways for modern audiences.

National Players is the touring program of Olney Theatre Center, a 501c3 not-for- profit and receives support from the Maryland State Arts Council, the Maryland State Department of Education, and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.

Called "the world's reigning male chorus" and "America's favorite choral ensemble" by The New Yorker magazine, the San Francisco-based, Grammy Award-winning ensemble Chanticleer is celebrating its 39th season. Named for the "clear-singing" rooster in Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, Chanticleer was founded in 1978. Chanticleer is known around the world as "an orchestra of voices" for the seamless blend of its 12 male voices, ranging from soprano to bass. The group will present My Secret Heart, a musical exploration of a songwriter's longing to penetrate the hidden places of the heart.
