Zombies, Ninjas and Fart Jokes as Hamlet Skids into Town

The Listies’ very cheeky, very clever, utterly irreverent riff on Hamlet – made especially for children – is coming to Glen Street Theatre, Belrose

The duo, maestros of children’s entertainment, have skilfully pulled apart Shakespeare’s classic and glued it back together with hilarious costumes, loads of silliness and plenty of interactivity.

According to The Listies, the time is right for Hamlet’s return.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to revisit an important work like Hamlet and put in more vomiting, fart jokes and body rolls. Which, to be frank it needed.

“Shakespeare is on the way up at the moment. In 2016 no-one knew who he was. He was super niche and indie, like only hipsters “got” him. But then he went on The Bachelor, did Celebrity Big Brother UK and now he is massive on Insta. We’ve heard something about a Netflix special, Love Island and a Kombucha endorsement but his agent is being super cagey,” said The Listies. 

When asked about how they felt to be performing in Belrose they replied, “Look, we loved 90210 and prolly our second fave TV show of the nineties was Belrose Place. Honestly what a golden era of TV that was, not like the tripe on the box nowadays. We are hoping that the inhabitants of Belrose come along to our Hamlet show, are impressed and cast us in the Stan redux which is surely coming.”

Hamlet is already full of things kids love in a good story: ghosts, castles, sword fights, bodily fluids and spooky stuff. Add to the mix some supersonic gags and expertly timed stage magic unlike anything kids have seen before and you have a brilliantly disguised Shakespearean tragedy for everyone aged five and over.

Expect bonus pillow fights, pirates, ninjas, ninja pirates, aliens, ninja pirate aliens, zombies and a bunch of other hilarious stuff as The Listies take kids and their adults on a fun-filled hour of theatre. The only thing we can be sure of is that everyone dies at the end – including the audience…from laughing!
