A Company of Fools presents HAMLET @ Canadensis – POSTPONED FOR 2022

Performance Update from A Company of Fools

“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”
Despite our best efforts, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel our upcoming tour of Hamlet in its entirety. Due to reasons both within and outside of our control, mounting the show in a way that lives up to the standard our audiences deserve has proved impossible at this time. We are so sorry to all of you who were looking forward to seeing Hamlet; we were equally excited to share it with you, and are heartbroken that it cannot happen this Fall. To everyone who has stuck with us through these tumultuous past few weeks, we extend our deepest and most sincere gratitude.
