The Listies – Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark | Darwin Festival

Concert or Performance

20 Aug 2021 to 21 Aug 2021 Once Only Event

The Listies, maestros of children’s entertainment, have pulled apart Shakespeare’s classic and glued it back together with hilarious costumes, loads of silliness and plenty of interactivity.

Hamlet is already full of things kids love in a good story – ghosts, castles, sword fights, bodily fluids and spooky stuff. Add to the mix some supersonic gags and expertly timed stage magic and you have a brilliantly disguised Shakespearean tragedy for everyone aged five and over. And that’s not all expect bonus pillow fights, pirates, ninjas, ninja pirates, aliens, ninja pirate aliens, zombies and a bunch of other hilarious stuff as The Listies take kids and their adults on a fun-filled hour of theatre. The only thing you can be sure of in this very cheeky, very clever and utterly irreverent riff on Hamlet is that everyone dies at the end – including the audience!
