Mission residents involved in unique Hamlet production

Show runs until Nov. 9 at The Shop Theatre in Vancouver

Two Mission residents are a part of BlackSpear Production’s Hamlet in Vancouver.

Hamlet is portrayed as a young female in a modern world in the show. The dialogue of the play stays true to the classic text, but everything else is cast under a new light with the gender reversal.

Tosh Sutherland, a graduate of Heritage Park Secondary, plays Guldenstern. He has been seen many times on the Clarke Theatre stage in school plays and other community events, such as the Optimist Club’s Talent Show. He has also perfromed with the Fraser Valley Academy of Dance, CanDance, and the Fraser Valley Youth Dance Theatre.

Petra Sevcik, a graduate of Hatzic Secondary, provides production support in the show. She has been involved in numerous community performance, including the Children’s Festival, Hatzic’s Dinner Theatre, and the Optimist Club’s Talent Show. She is a graduate of SFU’s Film Program.

Hamlet opened last week and will be on stage until Nov. 9. The Shop Theatre is located at 125 E. 2 Ave. For more info visit hamletattheshop.wordpress.com.
