Audience comments:


Brought Hamlet to life for me in new ways

This is the most compelling production of Hamlet I’ve ever seen.

“Wonderfully felt and spoken performances—the most powerful Hamlet I have seen.

“What an amazingly accessible, compelling, and inspirational production of Hamlet we enjoyed on Sunday! I have taught, seen, and even directed the play several times, yet your ensemble brought the language, the themes, and the infinite variety and depth of the text to vivid life beyond anything I have before experienced and imagined! Thank you! Bravo!

Performance dates/times

About Our Tickets and Pricing

At the door, you may pay any amount you choose between $18 - 42. We suggest four specific price levels: $42, $33, $25, and $18.

We endeavor to keep our ticket prices accessible while still covering our budgets and paying our artists.

All seating is general admission

Online Price Options

If each patron paid this amount, it would cover 73% of Hamlet's cost

If each patron paid this amount, it would cover 97% of Hamlet's cost

If each patron paid this amount, it would pay for Hamlet in full and also help us sustain educational programming such as our annual high school tour, as well as overall organizational growth

Other Options

Tickets $18 - 24 are only available at the door one hour before the performance.

Other attendance options include our pay-what-you-can performances, where you may pay any amount you are able at the door (no coins, please). We also make a limited amount of tickets available to new patrons through the Metropolitan Library Service Agency's smARTpass program.

Current COVID Protocols

Because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that even fully vaccinated people wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission (which currently includes Hennepin County), we will require audience members to wear masks while at Elision Playhouse.

Our cast and crew are fully vaccinated and will be unmasked while performing their onstage duties.
