Storyboard Text

  • Hamlet meets the ghost
  • The play to test Claudius
  • Hamlet murders Polonius
  • Hamlet meets the ghost and the ghost reveals that Claudius murdered King Hamlet by pouring poison in his ear while the King was taking a nap. Hamlet is now suspicious and wants to take revenge.
  • Hamlet gets captured by pirates
  • Hamlet is suspicious of Claudius but isn't 100% sure if it is him. Hamlet uses some actors and gets them to perform a play of a murderer pouring poison in the King's ear to see if Claudius is guilty.
  • The fencing match
  • After the actors performing the play, King Claudius was guilty and ran out of the room. Hamlet started to get mad and unstable, acting crazy to everyone he sees. Gertrude confronts him and Hamlet hears someone behind the curtains. Hamlet thought it was Claudius but it was actually Polonius, and Hamlet stabbed Polonius.
  • After the fencing match
  • King Claudius decides that Hamlet is too dangerous and sends him away to England. Claudius wrote a secret letter for Hamlet to be executed and Hamlet secretly changed it for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to be executed. On Hamlet's way to England, he gets captured by pirates but eventually, the pirates let him go back to Denmark.
  • Laertes arrives back at the castle and he finds out that Polonius had been killed and Ophelia had drowned herself. Laertes was furious and asked Claudius how it all happened. Claudius blamed it all on Hamlet and so Claudius arranged a fencing match; however, the plan was to try to get Hamlet killed. Claudius put poison on Laertes's sword and in the wine if Hamlet won.
  • Horatio is the only one still alive and he comes back shocked to see the whole royal family dead. Gertrude died because Hamlet didn't want to drink the poisonous wine so she drank it and died. Claudius died from getting stabbed from Hamlet's last piece of strength and Laertes died because he got wounded by a poisonous sword. Hamlet also died from a poisonous wound.
