Join Club members for a unique Bay Area theater performance on Alcatraz that is sure to sell out! In partnership with the National Park Service, We Players has staged a production of “Hamlet” by William Shakespeare, and directed by Ava Roy. Scenes are staged throughout the island – utilizing natural features and historic structures. The narrative path extends approximately 1.5 miles across Alcatraz and the performance journey will be approximately 4 hours from ferry departure to mainland return. The audience will have unprecedented opportunities to enter parts of the island regularly closed to visitors. In addition, the park’s regular visitors will encounter performance environments throughout the island that will enhance their experience of the space and its history.
