BREAKDOWN

The 21st Century rock version of the 17th Century play about love, honor, dynasty, deception, truth, redemption and loyalty. It's the play within a play, combining original music and lyrics (some creatively taken straight from the play dialogue) delivered through powerful rock ballads and anthems while honoring the traditional theatrical musical, all at the forefront of an elaborate modern set design and hi tech video and lighting, designed to support great actors, singers and dancers.

HAMLET, THE PRINCE OF DENMARK - Male, all ethnicities, 25-35 years old. A strong, brooding, sexy prince. HAMLET is a poet – complicated and sometimes cynical. A powerful presence. Some dancing and movement. Fencing experience a plus. VOCAL RANGE – middle C to high Bb
CLAUDIUS, THE KING OF DENMARK - Male, all ethnicities, 40+ years old. Charismatic, ambitious and manipulative king; often driven by his appetite for sex and power.
