Tom Stoppard's modern-day classic serves as a companion piece to Shakespeare's "Hamlet" and presents the chaotically funny world of two minor characters from the Bard's famous play. The script for "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1968 and is continually performed around the world. It was also produced as a major motion picture.
The show is directed by Bret Jones, program director of theatre at WSU. The cast for the show includes Caleb Coffman, Damian Padilla, Rachel Curtiss, Trevor Comstock, Sean Gestl, Hannah See, Bailey Burcham, Karina Williams, Steffan Rowe, Robert Thomas, Dan Kampling, Kyle Dilley, Allyson Geschwentner, Rian Helgason and Melissa Hudson.
Theatre student Megan Hanson is the stage manager for the show. Theatre students on design are Maddie Nevins (set) and Amanda Keeton (costumes); lighting is designed by associate professor David Neville.
