NPA Young Actors’ Guild Presents

The Hamlet Question
Gist Hall, Humboldt State University
337-339 Laurel Dr, Arcata
January 30, 31 and February 1 at 8pm
$15 for general admission and $10 for students/seniors

Inspired by the students’ energy in questioning how to be: how to rise and act for what you believe and what happens when you do not.

Performed by the NPA Young Actors Guild. Directed by Jean Heard Bazemore.


Why theatre education matters

Acting roles from different situations, time periods, and cultures promotes empathy, while the risk-taking of acting gives students a sense of confidence. Collaboration is key from stage design to on-stage performance.

Starting February 11, NPA Young Actors Guild Junior/Senior cast engages in intensive rehearsals of Aeschylus’s The Oresteia at the Bayside Community Hall for performances February 21-23.
