      The School of the Arts at Dean College will perform Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, beginning Wednesday, March 2, 2016 through Sunday, March 6, 2016.

      Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is the highly inventive tale of Shakespeare’s play Hamlet as told from the bewildered view of two minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The screenwriter of the Oscar winning Shakespeare in Love, Tom Stoppard presents this Elizabethan comic duo the opportunity to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end. You won’t want to miss our talented students perform this modern dramatic masterpiece!

      The Dean College production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead will take place in the Performing Arts Studios Stage at Dean College, 61 School Street, Franklin at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday – Saturday and 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets range from $5-$22 and can be purchased online. To learn more and purchase tickets, visit www.dean.edu/boxoffice
