SL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY TO LAUNCH INAUGURAL PERFORMANCE
The SL Shakespeare Company (SLSC) will open its first live mini-production of an Elizabethan production of Shakespeare's Hamlet on "SLSC Thursday", February 28th at 6 PM SL Time (PST). This will be the first in a series of single scene miniproductions the Company has planned to both preview and prepare for its upcoming full length version of Hamlet to open in November.
This mini-production performance of Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 1 Extended will be enacted in live voice by professional actors who are represented on-stage by avatar characters dressed in historically accurate wardrobe. In-world technological innovations such as sculpted animated faces, clever techniques in texture and sound effect preloading and novel methods for audience participation and interaction are a few extra bells and whistles of the event. Closed-captioning will be provided by subtitles in English, French, German, and Spanish. HUD's to facilitate the audience experience will be distributed on-
site at the SL Globe Theatre in-world and in the SL Shakespear Company group,
the company's in-world update group.
The show opens on "SLSC Thursday," February 28th at 6 PM SLT, with nine additional international showtimes:

expand the state of virtual theatre with the opening of each mini-production, and hopes to implement simulSim broadcasting technology to facilitate producer Ina Centaur's vision of "infinite theatre" for our next mini-production.
