Shakespeare and ... zombies?
Don't miss Living Dead in Denmark! The new production from Arizona Repertory Theatre is an action-adventure/horror/comedy sequel to Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Set five years after the events of the original, the undead have risen to power and are trying to take over the world, led by the zombie lord and true king of Denmark. Fortinbras, assembling a formidable opposition, has resurrected the corpses of some of the greatest women that Shakespeare had to offer: Lady Macbeth, Juliet, and the very angry Ophelia. A clash of the undead titans ensues!

Using Hamlet as a jumping-off point, playwright Qui Nguyen throws in martial arts, horror movies, pop songs, puppetry, and comic books in a hilarious and witty play that's equal parts parody and valentine to Shakespeare.
We are so excited to have guest director Inés Braun at the helm of Living Dead in Denmark. Braun, a stage and film director from Buenos Aires, joined actors Emma Sage (Ophelia), Brennen Halsey (Hamlet), and Alex Simpson (Fortinbras) for an interview with Arizona Spotlight's Mark McLemore broadcast last week on NPR 89.1FM. They reflected on their roles in the zombie-infested play, and their characters' motivations. Listen to the story here.
Living Dead in Denmark will run through March 20.
With memorable characters and a rock-and-roll score, this homage to music geek culture explores love, heartbreak, and the power of the perfect soundtrack.
When Brooklyn record store owner Rob finds himself unexpectedly dumped, his life takes a music-filled turn toward the introspective. Based on the popular novel by Nick Hornby, High Fidelity follows Rob as he struggles to discover how his relationship went awry, and strives to change his life in order to win back his sweetheart Laura. Directed by Hank Stratton.
Join us for the Arizona Repertory Theatre production of High Fidelity! April 10 - 24 in the Tornabene Theatre.
A new initiative of the Theatre Studies Division and BA students, Next Performance Collective houses outstanding student-devised pieces, works by emerging playwrights, and texts that experiment playfully with form and content. Next’s ensemble-driven productions showcase the BA students as content creators, storytellers, and performance makers. Next brings students together to collectively reimagine what the theatre can be and do.
Next at Next! We're pleased to present the New Directions Festival. The Festival showcases 100% student-created, student-designed, and student-performed content, allowing BA students to tell their stories through voices that are uniquely their own. This Spring’s Festival will be the very first in what will become an annual offering of the Next Performance Collective.
