“To be or not to be…”
Kids explore Shakespeare’s great ghost story (and the inspiration for Disney’s The Lion King) in a supportive ensemble setting. Using
theater games, improvisation, costumes, props, and stage fighting techniques, students rehearse scenes from this tale of betrayal, revenge, and conscience for a final performance for friends and family. No previous experience necessary.

Cost: $325. Limited space. Some scholarships available.

*The Shakespeare Playground™, directed and developed by professional actor/director/educator Renée Bucciarelli--now assisted by swordswoman Miranda Knutson-- was dubbed New York’s ‘hottest’ kids’ summer theatre program by The New York Post in 2000.
