Summary A fascinating journey behind the scenes of the Bell Shakespeare Company production of Hamlet, from first rehearsal to opening night. John Bell has stamped the role of Hamlet as his own, having played it numerous times over 35 years. Now he is handing on the baton to talented young actor Leon Ford (Changi) who moulds it into something fresh and exciting as Bell directs and watches the process with joy. The company playing with him in this acclaimed production is a mix of young and seasoned actors and their blood, sweat and tears rehearsing and refining the play come with intensity and playfulness. Seeing and hearing their preparation and calculation to make this production audience-ready is a wonderful eye-opener for everyone, not just theatre buffs. The inside view of the human and professional qualities it takes for the director, every actor and every head of department, from wardrobe to fight choreography, to make the play ready for the first curtain rise, comes with thrills and tension - and more than a little faith that it will be all right on the night. PRODUCTION DETAILS: Produced and directed by Anthony Heffernan.
