This one is for all the Shakespeare Kids out there who need a little drama in their life!

Supported generously by TD, the Shakespeare for Kids Library Club is a FREE readers’ theatre program for children ages 7-12.

Witches, ghosts, potions, magic, and humour!

Led by professional actors and educators, kids explore plays like Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth, Midsummer Night’s Dream, Tempest, Comedy of Errors, and Henry IVth.    They read aloud, play drama games, learn how to insult each other in Elizabethan English (oh, the skills we teach them), get a head start on high school, and make friends with other budding Bards.

The program runs for 6 Saturdays at 10 Toronto Public Library branches in the fall, 10 in the winter, and 10 in the spring.  The very first session for 2013/2014 starts Saturday, November 2nd.  Register early at participating branches. Please see below!
