The Listies Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark

The Listies Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark

If you wish to make a contribution to support The Listies across these difficult times (as an alternative to or in place of a ticket purchased)  add as many “$5tickets” to your basket for our Sunday 19 April “performance”.

Winner Primary Time Child's Choice Award 2019 Edinburgh Fringe

Australia’s favourite kidult comedy duo, The Listies, return to the Fest with a brand-new Badaption of the Bard. This is Shakespeare, Listies style – ninjas, ghosts, swords, dinosaurs and zombies! 

Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark is a side-splitting extravaganza that shatters the fourth wall and glues it back together with turbo-charged storytelling and silliness. Spoiler alert: everyone dies at the end – including the audience! 

For humans aged 4-400 million (dinosaurs allowed)

Rated S for Stupid and strictly not educational

'In short, it’s hilarious.' Sydney Morning Herald

'One of the funniest introductions to Shakespeare imaginable.★★★★' Sunday Telegraph

'If you want your kids to have fun at the theatre and fall for all its magic, get them to a Listies show... Nobody else makes Shakespeare this fun.' Daily Review
