UNF Shakespeare Presents Hamlet

University of North Florida, Carpenter Gallery

This student-adapted production of the haunting Elizabethan drama provides renovated depictions of Hamlet and Ophelia, Laertes and Polonius, Gertrude and Claudius which modernize the court at Elsinore in fresh—yet darker—tones. In this version of the Bard’s most famous play, the student cast dives into its exploration of the work’s classic themes of death, youth, and passion as well as its more contemporary concerns of mental health, political violence, and the stubborn self-questioning of identity. Join us in the catacombs in January to discover what realities lurk beneath the surface of what merely “seems.” For more information visit: EventBrite For Tickets.

While best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, Liz has steadily developed a reputation as an accomplished songwriter, crafting intimately personal portraits through her music. Liz’s songs have won some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Competition. With five albums to her name, Liz’s music has been featured on TV shows such as ABC’s “Beauty & The Beast”, Lifetime’s “Army Wives”, and MTV’s “Scream”. The latest release, ‘Weightless’, is the highly anticipated follow- up to Longley’s eponymous 2015 Sugar Hill Records debut, which earned accolades from critics, who proclaimed the album “a thing of beauty,” (Popdose), and praised her “captivating stories set to tunes that will be running through your head after a single spin.” (American Songwriter). Later this year, Liz is set to release her sixth album, produced by 5-time GRAMMY nominated producer, Paul Moak.
