Halls Gap - Due to the recent bushfires in the Grampians National Park, this year's Shakespeare in the Grampians presentation of Hamlet will be performed in the surrounds of Brambuk the National Park and Cultural Centre.
Ozact returns to the Grampians on April 18, 19 and 20 for its annual Shakespeare with another exciting production - Hamlet, the most powerful of all Shakespeare's plays.
Hamlet is the immortal tale of an aspiring young prince, seeking love and justice, driven to madness by the stifling world around him.
It is Shakespeare's political, philosophical and psychological thriller, mesmeric, chilling and viscerally engaging and 400 years on the play still has the power to haunt us.
Ozact has performed Shakespeare in the Grampians each year for the last 18 years and has brought to life many of Shakespeare's classics including King Lear, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, As you like it, Much ado about nothing, Twelfth night and A midsummer night's dream.
The spectacular surrounds of Brambuk in Halls Gap provides a perfect setting for Shakespeare's greatest works.
An impressive cast has been gathered for this production, with experienced actors and talented performers drawn from Ballarat, Melbourne and regional Victoria.
"Due to the recent fires in the Grampians National Park we will be performing in the lovely bushland surrounds of Brambuk the National Park and Cultural Centre for this year's performances at Easter," Ozact director Bruce Widdop said.
"It is a beautiful location which is sure to delight all. Bring a rug, cushion and someone you love, or a whole group of people you love, and enjoy the exceptional magic of Shakespeare in the Grampians."
