The Hamlet Project was the brain child of our founder and Executive Director Bob Chanda. His vision was to bring Shakespeare and its connections to the lives and experiences of young people to high school students who might not have exposure otherwise.

Students from 14 area high schools were recommended by their theatre teachers and came together to create art based on Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Dr. Chanda used the cutting edge theatre technique of devising to guide the students in creating their own Hamlet stories and at the same time introducing them to this timeless classic.
