This season HSC’s Shakespeare Under the Stars will be performed in repertory and will feature “Hamlet” by William Shakespeare and “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” by Tom Stoppard. Each performance weekend, we will alternate between productions. Performances will begin at 7pm, unless otherwise noted.
Check out this excellent review of our repertory shows from the Greenfield Recorder!
I’m just going to say it: You should go to the UMASS Renaissance Center and see these plays. The Center itself is a gorgeous spot — a serene cottage set on a lovely piece of land that will certainly remind you of “the beauty of the world.” While Hamlet commands, “Look you … this majestical roof fretted with golden fire,” you will be sitting in a serene field lit by the setting sun, and the hilarious and profound word-play of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern might make you believe again that humanity truly is “the paragon of animals.”
