San Francisco (July 14, 2016) – San Francisco Youth Theatre is pleased to present the
SFYT DREAM Ensemble production of William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, Hamlet.
SFYT’s production of Hamlet is set against the backdrop of present day San Francisco, with
the Danish monarchy being transformed into tech giant Elsinore.com. The play is edited so as to focus on the domestic tragedy that gives Hamlet much of its power. Hayes Valley
Artworks is a unique setting for this intimate production, performing in the open air. The live musical score, composed by Schuyler Karr, and performed on stand-up bass adds a
distinctly cinematic feel, which complements the play’s evocative language, beauty, and
San Francisco Youth Theatre creates cutting-edge theater that represents the unique
sensibilities of youth. SFYT’s DREAM Ensemble consists of high school and college-aged
actors dedicated to creating and performing works of art that tells the compelling stories of their community. http://www.sfyouththeatre.org. SF Youth Theatre is in residence at Brava Theater and Red Poppy Art House.
