Hamlet by William Shakespeare, Aquila Theatre


The Augusta University Lyceum Series


William Shakespeare's Hamlet

Hamlet is arguably Shakespeare’s greatest play. It is a compelling tale of familial discord, personal ambition, love and revenge. Directed by Desiree Sanchez, Aquila’s innovative use of movement, design, sound, and superb acting, vividly explores the depths of rage, madness, love and death brought about by a culture of obsessive personal ambition.


Aquila is one of the foremost producers of touring classical theater in the United States, visiting 50-60 American Cities per year. The Maxwell Theatre is looking forward to having them back again this year. Audiences may remember their production of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People. Aquila’s productions of Shakespeare have been critically acclaimed by The New Yorker as “beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect.” The New York Times says that Aquila “makes Shakespeare perfectly comprehensible” and hails the company as “an extraordinarily inventive and disciplined outfit.”
