"Sit down awhile, And let us once again assail your ears--"

Our fourth annual Shakespeare in the Park! EastLine brings the windy shores of Denmark to Long Island with Shakespeare’s iconic story of family and betrayal. After he is visited by the ghost of his murdered father, Prince Hamlet embarks on a revenge mission that will pit him against his own friends and family in his search for justice. Featuring live music and swordplay!

Hamlet by William Shakespeare is adapted and directed by Paul DeFilippo with original music by John Brautigam and fight choreography by Sinead Atkinson. Costumes are by Lyn Adler-Ciorciari, assisted by Wendy Pollak Grimm. The cast features Kuan Hao Huang, Megan Laguna, Michelle Osojnak, Kevin Rios, Michael Sherwood, Claire Sanderson, Debbie Starker, and Tom Williams.

EastLine Theatre is a nonprofit theatre company that Fire Island News calls “one of the boldest, bravest theatre companies on Long Island.” EastLine aims to create theatre in unlikely spaces while re-examining the canon, exploring modern plays, and bringing original works to the attention of the community.

EastLine returns to the great outdoors for a fourth year of Shakespeare in the Park after tours of Romeo & Juliet, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, and The Merry Wives of Windsor. In recent years, EastLine has produced Prospero (Live!), an original musical based on The Tempest; a sold out, immersive Diary of Anne Frank, a production of Treasure Island that BroadwayWorld said was “bursting at the seams with imagination”; and a production of In the Next Room by Sarah Ruhl that Long Island Theatre Scene said “raises the bar of creativity for all theaters.” EastLine’s season continues in August with the classic comedy Harvey, by Mary Chase at the BACCA Arts Center in Lindenhurst.
