    Being a teenager would be hard enough for Hamlette anyway — but add in a visit from her father’s ghost, her mother marrying her murdered father’s brother (her uncle!), and no one remembering she’s a girl, it’s enough to make poor Hamlette go mad. Hamlette takes the classic Shakespeare play, throws it in a blender, and shakes it up into a side-splitting comedy told in under an hour with only five actors. Recommended for young people age 11 and older. (RAH and KA age groups)
