Rules of Engagement

King Claudius & his Queen Gertrude request your attendance in Castle Elsinore to attend a sporting duel between the prince of Denmark Hamlet and our beloved friend of the court; the masterful Laertes. The royals ask that you maintain a distance, as that is the most exciting way to witness a match. May the best man win!

Once inside the castle, The royals invite you to:

Please wear your most festive attire! The time for somber clothing befitting the loss of our dearly departed King has passed, and the Royals ask that you join them in the celebration of their marriage and King Claudius’s coronation.

Interact with but please do not touch members of the court without their express invitation.

Speak but only when spoken to by a member of the court.

The participatory use of your cellular devices for sharing your experience is encouraged while at court, but the use of flash or videos of the court will not be tolerated by the king and will result in immediate expulsion from the castle grounds.
