Door Shakespeare Returns to a Magical Door County Garden


From June 30 – August 17, 2021 the finest professional theatre artists from around the country come together to share a story that has kept audiences on the edge of their seats for over 400 years: HAMLET. Equal parts revenge thriller, psychological exploration, ghost story, family drama, play within a play, and romance gone bad, the curtain falls on a literal killer ending as told by characters who are dreamers, schemers, actors, backstabbers, gravediggers, poisoners, kings, queens, princes, watchmen, ghosts, college students, and social climbers. 

“A top ten theatrical experience!” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) Door Shakespeare productions unfold before your eyes. As dusk falls over the course of the play, you may take on the role of confidante or voyeur. By the end of the evening, when the stars are out and you witness the final bow, you feel as though you have come to know the world around you a little better. Such is the magic of live theatre when performed in an outdoor setting so enchanting that many in attendance come back year after year since Door Shakespeare’s inception in 1995.
