WHAT: The Cerritos College Theatre Department will present concurrent productions of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” and Tom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.” Both productions, which open October 20, will consist of the same cast, set, and costumes, but will feature different directors.
The Shakespearean classic tragedy “Hamlet” tells the story of a young prince who is robbed of his throne and asked to revenge his father's murder. “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead,” is an existential comedy involving two minor characters in “Hamlet” and shows the play from their point of view.
John Zamora will direct “Hamlet,” and Kevin Hoggard will direct “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.” Previously, Zamora has directed “A Piece Of My Heart” and “The Laramie Project,” while Hoggard has directed “The Diary of Anne Frank” and “The Man Who Came to Dinner.” Hoggard recently starred in “The Man of La Mancha.”
