Shakespeare and the Language That Shaped a World
By Kevin G. Coleman
Directed by Jenna Ware
Featuring Kiki Bertocci, Emily Ehlinger, Kelly Galvin, Marcus Kearns, Enrico Spada and Ryan Winkles
A whirlwind tour through the life, times and work of William Shakespeare featuring six actors, a few props and a truckload of historical information and scenes from Shakespeare’s plays.
This hysterical, fast-paced presentation is designed to introduce kids and adults to Shakespeare through his stories, characters and words—with a bit of sword-fighting and clowning thrown in for good measure. Whether you are a newbie to Shakespeare’s works or a connoisseur, Shakespeare and the Language that Shaped a World is sure to satisfy the young and young at heart!
Each presentation is followed by a free, interactive workshop based on Shakespeare’s zany The Comedy of Errors.
