Hamlet in Denver

Soapy Smith Duck and his mom invited my mom and me, Zeb the Duck, to see Hamlet.  I was so excited.  Our moms love plays and love the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, but Soapy and Zeb have never been here before.

We went to a matinee.  Before the performance Soapy and Zeb posed for photos.

These dancers are really tall!!  Zeb and Soapy are standing on a foot—the foot on the left side of this photo.  We look like yellow dots.  Here we are, Soapy on the foot and Zeb on the ground.

Really big feet!

This is one entrance to the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.  We ducks love the roof.

This center has multiple theaters and artwork.  Here is one statue in the complex.

We like this place.

Inside the building near the entrance we saw these small tables.

Little known facts about Hamlet are here.  It is very nice to learn unusual facts about our show.  We really like Lion King, so we think we will like Hamlet also.

Time to enter the theater, but mom said no photos during the performance.  We loved this performance.  Maybe our moms will bring us here again.  They are talking about seeing another performance.

After the show, some of the actors and other people instrumental in this production talked to the audience.

They were very interesting and informative.

Here we are, by the statue of King Hamlet, the very King that was murdered in this play.

This was an exciting day for ducks and moms.  We hope you will see Hamlet, or some other live performance.  The Denver Center for the Performing Arts is beautiful, but if you don’t live in Denver, see a live performance in your area of the world.  You will like it!
