What It’s About
Jobsite returns to the Jaeb for this searing tragedy of a man, tormented by his father’s death, that confronts each one of us with the mirror of our own mortality in a far from perfect world. Who can be trusted? Who can be believed? Sent by Hamlet’s father’s ghost to avenge his brutal death, Hamlet’s mission to expose the truth is a perilous journey of madness, murder, and lost love.
A ghost story, detective adventure, and revenge tale all at once, Hamlet is often regarded as the best-written play of all time.
This is Jobsite’s 22nd season of celebrating the Bard with another epic, engaging staging featuring another powerful score from the company’s award-winning resident composer Jeremy Douglass.
Weekday field trip matinees for school students are available starting Jan. 17. All groups attending field trips are offered custom study guides and visits from teaching artists before and after the show. Please call 813.222.1016 or write Spencer.Meyers@strazcenter.org to learn more.
