On Tour: Shakespeare Meets Hip Hop

May 4- May 15, 2015

Shakespeare Meets Hip Hop is a vibrant, interactive presentation that demonstrates how modern hip-hop shares many similarities with the themeslanguage and rhythm used by Shakespeare. Both are full of poetry, word play and lyricism and both deal with what it is to be human.

Shakespeare Meets Hip Hop brings alive the parallels between the world of the plays and their own contemporary experience. It’s the perfect complement to your in-class teaching of a specific play, in the beginning, in the middle or at the end. Visit our Shakespeare Meets Hip Hop page for booking info!

If you have any questions regarding our upcoming shows and events, please feel free to send us an e-mail, or call us at (416) 703-4881!

Hello dearest readers. Happy Friday!

I know we are all looking forward to a quiet and relaxing weekend, but I know some folks who are ready to have some fun! Our TD Shakespeare for Kids Library Club is back for another session starting on November 2, at Toronto Public Library locations across the city! The sessions run from 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm.

We had a training session on Monday with our library instructors and some of our interns! Our Education Coordinator led the group through a series of workshops, so they will be able to lead their own groups through Shakespeare’s works!
