OREGON SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL’S
HORROR HALLOWEEN SEASON
SHORT RADIO SPOTS
HAMLET, THE SHINING
[SFX: Heavy lurching footsteps, Axe clucking onto wood]
SFX: [blood curdling scream]
Stephan King meets Shakespeare in Oregon Shakespearean Festival’s new Horror Halloween season, “Hamlet, The Shining” – The ghost of Hamlet’s father possesses his son, the prince of Denmark and goes on a blood spree with an axe, hacking up the courtiers and the royal couple Claudius and Gertrude while grinning maniacally and whispering menacingly.
A little more than kin, and less than kind -- And all
work and no play makes Hamlet a dull boy.
