    Austin Shakespeare has been bringing free Shakespeare in Zilker Park to the citizens of Austin for 24 years.  Don't miss our latest outdoor wizardry under the South First Street bridge where four daring actors will attempt the feat of performing Shakespeare's Hamlet in fifteen minutes or less!  Can they do it?  Cheer on Austin Shakespeare's fastest, finest actors in this uproarious abridgement of Shakespeare's masterpiece.  Starring award-winning actor and New Orleans transplant Justin Scalise and Esther's Follies showstopper Ted Meredith.  Kid-friendly direction from Beth Burns.  Join the fun as they "speak the speech trippingly on the tongue."  Really, really trippingly.

    "The most decisive Hamlet I've ever seen.  Wish I'd thought of it." -- the Ghost of Sir Laurence Olivier.
