CCAC South Campus Theatre Company presents “Hamlet”
PITTSBURGH—The Community College of Allegheny County South Campus Theatre Company, Food for Groundlings, presents Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Hamlet at 7:30 p.m. June 17 through June 20 in the campus theatre.
This is the fourth year that Food for Groundlings, South Campus Theatre’s resident company of students, alumni and community members, has produced one of the Bard’s plays. Over 400 years after its first performance, Hamlet is among the most influential and powerful tragedies in English literature. Set in Denmark, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet seeks on his uncle Claudius, who murdered his brother and Hamlet’s father, King Hamlet, and who married Hamlet’s mother, Gertrude, after seizing the throne. One of Shakespeare’s most popular works during his lifetime, the play still ranks among his most-performed.
Admission is free with a suggested donation to the Kevin Dilworth Memorial Theatre and Dance Scholarship or a non-perishable food item to be donated to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Dilworth was a CCAC theatre and dance student who passed away from complications due to Cystic Fibrosis in 2012.
Seating is not reserved. For more information, call 412.469.6219. The CCAC South Campus Theatre is located at 1750 Clairton Road in West Mifflin, Pa., 15122.
