By William Shakespeare, directed by Carla Spindt  

Thank you for coming to see Hamlet!

Skillfully directed by Carla Spindt, the famed story of the Prince of Denmark was reimagined to feature an all female cast of students.

Set in a dystopian future, the play follows the story of Prince Hamlet, who comes home to find that his uncle, Claudius, has taken his place on the throne and has married the Queen after the passing of his father. As if this were not distressing enough, the ghost of his father appears to him and imparts the secret that Claudius was the one who killed him. Hamlet must decide what to do when asked to properly avenge his father’s murder.

Oliver Twist

Oliver Twist

October 10-14  at 7:00 pm 

By Charles Dickens, directed by Stephanie Hunt

Thank you for coming to see Oliver Twist!

The captivating tale took to the stage of Conservatory Theatre Ensemble on October 10th and ran through the 14th. This adaptation, by Neil Bartlett, was beautifully directed by Stephanie Hunt and involved a very talented cast and crew of students from Tamalpais High School.

Set in the bewitching time period of the original story, the play follows the life a young orphan, Oliver Twist, as he goes from worker to apprentice to thief in a struggle to survive. Twist’s desperate search for a caretaker artfully points out the injustice that was dealt to both the young and the poor during Dickens’ time, and balances the ideas of danger and fear against innocence and hope.

Neil Bartlett has been making rule-breaking theatre and performance since 1983. After a controversial early career he was appointed Artistic Director of the Lyric Hammersmith in London in 1994; since leaving the Lyric in 2005 major cultural producers he has worked for theatres including the National Theatre, the Abbey in Dublin, the Bristol Old Vic, the Manchester ROyal Exchange, the Edinburgh International, Manchester International, Brighton, Aldeburgh and Holland Festivals, the Wellcome Foundation, and Tate Britain.
