The Tragedy of Hamlet Prince of Skidmark 

"In short, it's hilarious." Sydney Morning Herald

An hour-long comedy bomb of Shakespeare plus ninjas. And zombies, Prince of Skidmark is a new, very cheeky, interactive version of the Dane for children. This comic adventure shatters the fourth wall and glues it back together with turbo-charged story-telling and silliness.

Hamlet is full of thrilling things that kids love in a good story: ghosts, castles, sword fights, fake blood and spooky stuff. Enter super-sonic gags, expertly timed stage trickery and special effects unlike anything kids have seen before and you have a very cleverly 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 mayhem that mischievously celebrates the excitement and unpredictable nature of live theatre.  

The only thing we can be sure of is that everyone dies at the end – including the audience!
