Show!: October 2012 Archives
Monday October 29, 2012
In one French theatre in Montreal, they're doing a production called "Hamlet is dead" (Hamlet est mort). But the prince of Denmark is alive and well, in English, in a new staging by Persephone Productions.
The company is performing Shakespeare's Hamlet with a cast and crew of twenty-something actors, set and lighting designers.

The stage-show "La Fabuleuse Histoire d'un Royaume" has been performed for the past 25 years in Saguenay.
And in that time, more than one-million people have seen this massive production.
It tells the story of the region's history --- from 1603 until present time. And it does so with 200 volunteers on stage.
Three years ago, the show was translated and began performing in English. The CBC's Rachelle Solomon was in Saguenay recently and saw the show.
She joins Sonali Karnick from our Quebec City studio.
