The production takes its inspiration from one of the earliest recorded performances of Hamlet during Shakespeare’s lifetime. On 31st March 1608, off the east coast of South Africa, the crew of the East India ship, Red Dragon, performed it for their captain.
Tickets can be bought through Computicket. There are 256 tickets available and cost R180 each. The Pride Shelter will get R50 from each sale!
Please follow these instructions. Don’t buy the ‘Full price’ or ‘Randgo’ tickets, as they won’t benefit the shelter financially. Get the ‘Pride Night’ tickets.

Be quick! As the performance is open to the general public, not everyone buying tickets for 18th April will know the special ‘SHELTER’ code. We’d love as many people as possible who know the code to get tickets. So please share with your friends and family. If all 256 tickets are sold via ‘Pride Night’, the Pride Shelter will get R12,800!
