Hamlet <p>"This above all: to thine own self be true."<br />Directed by Carolyn Howarth<br />Shakespeare's masterpiece, often considered the greatest play in the English language, returns for CSF's 60th season. When Hamlet's world is ripped apart by his father's sudden death and his mother's hasty remarriage, the young prince's mind wrestles with his heart in a tormented quest to uncover the truth. Staged for the first time inside the intimate University Theatre, this is Hamlet as you've never seen it before.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead <p>"Look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else."<br />Directed by Timothy Orr<br />In this hilarious and mind-bending comedy by the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Shakespeare in Love, Hamlet is brilliantly retold through the eyes of two minor characters. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two bewildered schoolmates sent to pull Prince Hamlet out of his descent into madness, grapple with fate, free will and the game of life. CSF's production brings its full Hamlet cast on stage to inhabit Stoppard's ingenious parallel universe of wit and wisdom.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center
