From the Director,

And now the time has come again to show the Bard our stuff,

The  words and words and words we speak are his unless we bluff.

A danish prince, a king and queen , a maid who seems confused,

A play within a play is shown, the plot has been reused.

“To be or not to be” I hear are words we all know well.

Alas, our prince  must stand alone onstage where he must dwell.

The swords will fly, the poison strong as things come to an end,

And who is left to tell the tale but Hamlet’s trusted friend.
