This badaptation of the Bard will be a school holiday treat!

Kidault superstars The Listies are back with their side-splittingly clever badaptation of Shakespeare’s classic, made just for kids.

A very cheeky, very clever, utterly irreverent riff on Hamlet – made especially for children. The Listies, maestros of children’s entertainment, have pulled apart Shakespeare’s classic and glued it back together with hilarious costumes, loads of silliness and plenty of interactivity.

Hamlet is already full of things kids love in a good story: ghosts, castles, sword fights, bodily fluids and spooky stuff. Add to the mix some supersonic gags and expertly timed stage magic and you have a brilliantly disguised Shakespearean tragedy for everyone aged five and over.

And that’s not all… expect bonus pillow fights, pirates, ninjas, ninja pirates, aliens, ninja pirate aliens, zombies and a bunch of other hilarious stuff as The Listies take kids and their adults on a fun-filled hour of theatre. The only thing we can be sure of is that everyone dies at the end – including the audience!

"One of the funniest introductions to Shakespeare imaginable"
— Daily Telegraph
"If you want your kids to have fun at the theatre and fall for all its magic, get them to a Listies show as soon as possible… Nobody else makes Shakespeare this fun."
— Daily Review
"This is Hamlet with everything you could have wanted and more, and it’s the perfect way to introduce a young person o the magic and chaos of theatre, as well as to the work of Shakespeare."
— ArtsHub
