We chose an bedouin theme for our Hamlet, in light of the current world events. This needed many new costumes designed and created by Mrs. Orr. A tent was built that would be set up and struck dramatically at given moments to create indoor scenes, as seen here with Jerica, Nicole Casper, Beth, and Kristen.

Polonius (Ned Boreham) gives his advice to son, Laertes (Billie Fox), loving brother to Ophelia (Kathy Burgos).

Horatio (Becca Miller) tells Hamlet (Joseph Cavin) of the vision seen upon the ramparts.
