A Hamlet Reunion This May

Posted on June 2nd, 2011 by

The Department of Theatre and Dance at Gustavus presented the timeless classic Hamlet in Anderson Theatre this May 5-14, 2011. The matinee on May 8th was a particularly special performance because a few alumni and members of the cast from the 1966 performance of Hamlet attended that performance. Linda Gulder Huett ’66 played the role of Gertrude, Gary Rankila ’68 played Horatio, and Eric Gustavson ’66 played the tremendous role of Hamlet the last time Gustavus put on a production of Hamlet. They enjoyed the performance immensely, and both casts had a good time meeting each other and discussing the performance at a reception afterwards, which included reciting many Shakespeare lines!
