Where did you first encounter Shakespeare? Were you in a theater, seeing a play? Were you acting out a scene in school? Were you eating popcorn, watching a movie? Were you in bed, listening to your parents read a story?
"Golden Lads and Lasses": Shakespeare for Children tells the story of all the ways that Shakespeare and his tales have been presented to kids for hundreds of years. You'll see novels, plays, comic books, movies, toys, and paper dolls from the seventeenth century up until today.
Come and find out why plays written four hundred years ago are still exciting. With his witches, fairies, kings, queens, and clowns--his stories of love, ambition, and adventure–it's easy to understand why Shakespeare is for kids of all ages!
