‘Hamlet’ by StageOne and Kentucky Shakespeare

If you think of children’s books featuring revenge, death and ghosts, a series like “Harry Potter” probably comes to mind. Plays by William Shakespeare might not even crack your Top 10. And yet, they should. StageOne Family Theatre, in collaboration with Kentucky Shakespeare, is putting on a contemporary interpretation of William Shakespeare’s play of revenge featuring Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark. Everyone will be quoting, “To be, or not to be — that is the question,” during the car ride home.
