Play from the comfort of home! APT is offering an option to watch APT's production of Hamlet as an alternative (or addition) to coming to see us in Spring Green. A fully produced recording, it's as close as you can get to watching in the theater. Bonus: seeing the actors work their magic on screen brings a new degree of intimacy to their performances, allowing you to hear every word, and experience every minuscule change of expression in ways that aren’t possible even in the Touchstone. So spread your picnic blanket in the living room, pour a beverage of choice and prepare for a new kind of APT experience.

Group rates are available for special events, organizations and schools. Contact the box office at [email protected] or call 608-588-2361 for pricing and information.

  • Lower the resolution on the video. When you click "Watch Now", you will see the video page open up. If you hover your mouse over the video, you should see "auto" on the bottom of the video player. You can change the resolution to 720p or lower.
