Hamlet

A Canadian Stage Production

 
Over 40 years of Shakespeare under the stars

Dive into the electrifying world of Shakespeare's timeless masterpiece, helmed by Jessica Carmichael (Stratford, Shaw, Blyth) with a fantastic ensemble of players. Set amidst the tumultuous backdrop of political intrigue and familial betrayal, this iconic tale follows the tormented Prince of Denmark as he grapples with existential questions of life, death, and revenge.

Rush Tickets

Tickets for Dream in High Park are general admission seating. Gates will open to ticketholders 2 hours prior to each performance. The Box Office for in-person Rush will open 30 minutes before each performance, allowing patrons to purchase Rush tickets to that night's performance, subject to availability. You may purchase in-person Rush tickets by tapping a card/phone or by cash payment. There is no minimum cash payment, but our suggested donation is $20 per person. Rush tickets are also available online starting at 12:00pm on the day of the performance, with a minimum donation of $15.

Rush tickets have the same Pay-What-You-Can pricing as always. We’ve made accessing Rush PWYC tickets more convenient by adding online availability. Those who buy their tickets online can skip the in-person Rush line, allowing more time to claim your seats and enjoy the beautiful site!

Canadian Stage is proud to uphold the tradition of Dream in High Park, and we thank you for your part in keeping the dream alive!
