Some comments from last year:

‘….. I'm incredibly grateful that you're doing what you do, and believe me, it makes studying Shakespeare in year 12 much more interesting!’ (Gwendolyn Lee)

‘Director David Ritchie has succeeded brilliantly in making Hamlet as timely a study as ever in revenge, integrity, and the moral dilemma faced in choosing between these forces’. (Sandra Bodwen, Oz Baby Boomers)

‘We loved the way Hamlet in the Harlos Production switched his apparent madness on and off and ran verbal rings around everyone. Much of the performance fitted with how we had visualized things but the emphasis and intonations in those particular parts were something we didn’t quite get until seeing the performance.

‘The supporting characters were hilarious! The staging was brilliant and the scene changes were so quick which made everything fit perfectly, in some cases it felt as if the action was all around you’. (Students from Glen Innes HS)

‘The cast gave a clear and interesting reading of the text which appeared to be always reaching for and achieving emotional truth!’ (James Kearney)

‘Thanks for such a wonderful show. I brought my friend who never goes to the theatre and she was enthralled through the entire stylish production’. (Beverley Callow)

‘Our students really enjoyed your production. There were great discussions in the bus and on the way home and again in class this morning. Thank you so much – it isn’t every production that recognizes the needs of a teenage audience approaching Shakespeare.’ (Jen Davis, Head Teacher English, Mudgee High School)

‘Thank you for the fabulous production of ‘Hamlet’. The cast was amazing. My step-daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed what we thought was just another HSC chore – it was anything but. A truly memorable night’. (Janet Fletcher)
