“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!”

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.
