30 second Hamlet Act I Hey Hamlet, what's on your mind? Oh, I know that your kin have all been less than kind Yeah, your mother's remarried, your dad has just died, And it all seems a little suspicious, now, And you're starting to have these visions, now. And something is rotten in the state of Denmark. Oh your father in armor is haunting the ramparts, And your mother's upset that your clothes are so dark, But now you're starting to make some sense of it. A murder committed, and you will avenge it, But to prove that it's true, you'll play the detective. And I hope you know what you're doing, 'Cause you can tell that trouble's a'brewing. Oh, and Hamlet, Hamlet, I just hope you don't screw it all up.
Homework Work Time Read page 2 of your packet and/or start working on learning the film terms for the quiz TOMORROW!
