Storyboard Text

  • Marcellus and Bernardo inform Hamlet of a ghost...
  • STOP THE PLAY..! Get me out of here, now! I can't stand it!
  • Hello, my son. I have been murdered by King Claudius, your uncle. He poisoned me while I was resting in the garden! Please, Hamlet, revenge my death, but leave your mother out of it.
  • Father?? Don't worry, I'll do whatever it takes! I may even act a little off-the-rails...
  • Act 1
  • After a play finishes, King Claudius and Ophelia draw conclusions about Hamlet...
  • I believe Hamlet has gone love-crazy...it seems Ophelia isn't returning his letters, as I instructed her to do. Good...
  • O, what a rogue and peasant slave am I! I need to find out if the ghost was telling the truth so I can go ahead and exact my revenge! Wait, I have a plan...
  • Act 2
  • Everyone dies and the story ends...
  • To be, or not to be? That is the question. Why not just kill yourself if you're un-phased by what comes after death? Why put up with it at all? How could I ever love you, Ophelia??
  • Oh, Hamlet! What is the matter with you?! Have you gone mad?!
  • This reaction is JUICY! I need to eavesdrop some more...
  • Act 3
  • Act 3
  • I guess the ghost wasn't lying like I thought. This reaction proves it. I'll need to have a word with my mother, a sharp word.
  • Act 4
  • Hamlet has killed Polonius! His words really were sharp!
  • I'll never trust you 2! You're like sponges. That old coot got what he deserved, and I've already said what I wanted to my mother. I'll speak no more.
  • Tell us, your 2 childhood friends whom you can trust, where the body is.
  • X X
  • Even though I'm about to die, I still want everyone to know that I grief over Ophelia's death the most!HORATIO! TELL MY STORY TO EVERYONE!
  • Oh, Hamlet. I, Laertes, grief over her as well. Both you and her have been driven mad, and I pity you.
