We are always delighted when artists we work with enjoy international success, so we are very pleased that Toby Schmitz will be shooting the second season of Black Sails, a blockbuster TV series directed by Michael Bay. Unfortunately and unexpectedly shooting begins in South Africa just before the end of the season of Hamlet. Toby will give his last performance on Sunday 17 November.

The wonderful news is that Belvoir favourite Ewen Leslie (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Wild Duck) will be stepping in to play Hamlet for the final two weeks of the production. Ewen was highly acclaimed for his performance as Hamlet in the 2011 production at Melbourne Theatre Company, and if you have seen any of his many performances at Belvoir you will know how talented he is. We are very lucky that Ewen is making time to take on this role between his very busy schedule shooting a television series.

Affected ticket holders have been contacted directly, however if you have any concerns about your tickets please contact the Box Office on 02 9699 3444. Tickets for Hamlet can be purchased here.

Please note: As Ewen will be shooting during most days we have had to cancel the 2pm matinee on Wednesday 20 November.
