Take the fear out of Shakespeare with our Start Up Shakespeare family events before the matinees on October 15, 22, 29, and November 5. Doors open at 1:00 p.m. for families to experience the art behind Shakespeare's play in a special gallery designed to prepare parents and kids alike for the show. At 1:30 p.m., we will begin our special pre-show workshop where we'll explore the characters’ power struggle in A Midsummer Night’s Dream—and how it raises questions that hit a little close to home for anyone who's felt the urge to rebel.
Finally, we'll wrap up the workshop getting Shakespeare's rhythm into our bodies and send families off to the show ready to tune into the beat of Shakespeare's ultimate comedy.
