Revelstoke Theatre Company and The Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre are excited to announce that the National Theatre Live production of Hamlet will be screened at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre on Saturday April 23, 2016.

Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game,Frankensteinat the National Theatre) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy. Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, National Theatre Live will broadcast this eagerly awaited production live to cinemas.
