Our Next Show


What do witches, fairies, donkeys and a shipwreck have in common? They all came from Shakespeare’s Stories! This is a story about a group of children that discover magic in their lives through acting out the stories of William Shakespeare, written 500 years ago! Inspired by Ken Ludwig’s book, How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s Stories is part of our summer Shakespeare Project proving its never too early (or too late!) to learn some Shakespeare!
