Introducing Eight Works by William Shakespeare Made Easy!
Up to 80 Characters that can be played by an Entire Class or 6 M / 4 F
Playing time: Approximately 55 minutes*
*Scenes may be cut as needed to fit the desired time frame

A great way to introduce the Bard to your young students. Scher and Lema have crafted a clever collection of scenes presented in everyday language that tell the stories of eight of Shakespeare’s best known plays. Two narrators weave the stories together, each play with its own cast, or with players playing multiple roles. The narrators engage the audience throughout the play— and from among the audience, actors sometimes spring to life as characters in the stories. With the flexible format, several classes could combine to present “Shakespeare for Kids!” for a school assembly, or a smaller group of older actors might band together to perform for school audiences. Whichever way, and no matter whether you perform two, five or all eight of the scenes, you’ll find you really CAN introduce Shakespeare to primary and intermediate audiences in a fun and entertaining way that better prepares them for High School. $10 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $30 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre. Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
