Storyboard Text

  • An Unwanted Admirer
  • Forbidden Love
  • The Falling Out
  • Ophelia is shopping in the village square when Rosencrantz and Gildenstern, start to creepily love her. She is unable to shake their admiration. The men are unaware of her relationship with Hamlet and believe they can woe her. Ophelia feels uneasy, and it shows in her mood.
  • The Wizard and the Love Potion
  • Laertes and Polonius don't believe Hamlet actually loves her. They forbid Ophelia from being with Hamlet. Their feelings mostly come from Hamlet being a prince, but are also due to Ophelia's uneasy mood. Although Ophelia tries to fight for their fate, she reluctantly agrees to stay away from Hamlet.
  • It was an accident...
  • Polonius and Claudius use Ophelia to figure out Hamlet's mood. Ophelia trys to return some love letters to Hamlet. He tells her he never gave her any letters, and to go to a nunnery. Ophelia is crushed and believes Hamlet never loved her. He is very rude and physical. She is heart-broken.
  • The Second Ghost
  • Ophelia is in tears after their falling out and visits the castle wizard to get him to create a love potion for her to give to Hamlet. She believes the potion will strength her and Hamlets love, and restart their passion.
  • Ophelia runs to the dock, to give the drink (potion) to Hamlet for his travel to England. Rosencrantz tries to show off infront of her by swinging on the ropes like a sailor. He accidentally knocks her into the sea. The current is too strong and her dress fills with water. She drowns.
  • Everyone believes Ophelia committed suicide, so she didn't get the proper Christian burial. Therefore her soul is unable to go to heaven, and she remains on Earth as a ghost.
