Kids & the Classics

“Kids & the Classics” is the companion piece to Hip to Hip’s program of "Free Shakespeare in the Parks.” This free interactive workshop is offered 30 minutes before every performance, and is designed for children ages 4 to 12. It gives children a chance to interact with the text by previewing the characters and situations, and creating links between the text and their own lives through theatre games and close reading of text.

The Tragedy of King Richard III

After a long civil war, England enjoys a period of peace under King Edward. But Edward’s younger brother Richard, who helped him to the throne, grows restless in the shadows. Shakespeare’s searing drama chronicles the bloody rise and fall of the last English king to die on the battlefield.

REMINDER: As a courtesy to the actors there is no ball playing, etc, during the performance.
