This sounds like a very fun and exciting project, but there are so many
different ways to stage Hamlet regarding the dress. Do you want a very
traditional, Elizabethan English look to the costuming? or a Danish
look? You might do better to look at books on period costuming.
Do you want the narration to be in Spanish or English? What do you mean
it is not available for Mexico...the vendor won't ship it to you? or it
is in the wrong format or wrong language?
Why not have your English students read it?
If you don't mind waiting a couple months, I would gladly have my
students make a recording of a 1 hour cutting and send it to you...this
is just the sort of global project my school district encourages! I
teach at a performing arts high school in Phoenix, AZ.
Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss any ideas in
