Ghosts, murder, revenge, and other rotten things in Denmark come to the spectacular ballroom of the Turnblad Mansion for Theatre Coup d'Etat's Hamlet. The production marks the first time in years the building, home of the American Swedish Institute since 1929, has been used for a theatrical performance. The show is being directed by the acting ensemble, led by Peter Beard (Hamlet) and James Napoleon Stone (Laertes). This is the third time the young company has turned to the work of the Bard in the past couple of years, having also tackled Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet. The group certainly doesn't lack ambition. Their other two productions were the first half of Angels in America and Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named Desire. The company also includes Arthur Peden, Meri Golden, Jim Ahrens, Kelly Nelson, and Brie Roland. (Photo by Studio Laguna Photography)
