To be or not to be at Jobsite Theater’s run of “Hamlet” will be the hottest question in Tampa Bay this January.

“Hamlet” will show at the Straz Center Jan. 13-Feb. 5, with select preview shows on Wednesday-Thursday, Jan. 11-12. Tickets are available now for $39.50 for regular showings and $24.50 for previews.

Jobsite will visit the Shakespeare classic as they tell the timeless story of Hamlet, a young student forced to face grief, mortality, murder, lost love and tragedy. The cast includes Giles Davies (Hamlet), Carla Corvo (Horatio), Roxanne Fay (Gertrude/Gravedigger) and more.

The play has been adapted and directed by Jobsite’s David M. Jenkins and scored by the company’s award-winning resident composer Jeremy Douglass.

"A ghost story, detective adventure, and revenge tale all at once, Hamlet is often regarded as the best-written play of all time," the Jobsite Theater website reads.

More information about the show and ticket sales can be found at jobsitetheater.org.
