Adapted and directed by artistic director Tim Errickson, the limited engagement, which runs through July 15, features Zack Calhoon as Hamlet and Mark Souza as Laertes.

Joining Calhoon and Souza are Ashley Bloom (Rosencrantz), David Carlyon (Player King), John Greenleaf (Claudius), Stefan Dezil (Horatio), Annalisa Loeffler (Gertrude), Uriel Menson (Polonius), Ralph Petrarca (The Ghost), Cristina Pitter (Ensemble), Steph Van Vlack (Player Queen), JP Villa (Ensemble), Carsey Walker, Jr. (Guildenstern) and Kayla Wickes (Ophelia).

In Boomerang’s reinvented new version, a "young prince finds himself in the middle of duel. His family and friends look on, laughing carelessly. Somewhere nearby, the girl he loves lies buried in a fresh grave. These will be the prince's last breaths, his last thoughts. The rest is silence."

The creative team includes Michael Eisenstein (fight direction), Kia Rogers (lighting), Sara Slagle (props) and Michelle Foster (production stage management).
