Summer of Shakespeare: Scenes for Kids
Brazos Bookstore, Saturday, August 8 at 2pm
You may not know it, but kids are the ideal audience for Shakespeare. Young kids thrive on gripping stories and engaging storytelling. Rather than being a barrier, Shakespearean language and wordplay are a great point of interest for kids--how many times as a child did you fixate on one new word, and say it over and over until it didn’t sound like a word anymore? Those kinds of children will love Shakespeare and his language, just as much as the magic, the characters, and the twisty plots. More than that, kids are smart, and they need smart material to keep up with them.

Bring your young readers to our children’s Summer of Shakespeare program, an abridged version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream presented by the talented teen actors of Main Street Theater’s Summer Shakespeare program. The play will run approximately 45 minutes, and there will be a 15 minute talkback afterward for the audience to interact with the director and performers. This event is designed for children ages 6-10.

Summer of Shakespeare: The Tempest
Brazos Bookstore, Wednesday, August 12 at 7pm
The Tempest, one of Shakespeare’s late plays, is a fantasy, a romance, a comedy, a family drama--unquestionably genre-defying and difficult to classify. Some scholars believe it was the last play Shakespeare wrote. We’ll discuss what context that thought brings to the play, as well as what the play says about colonialism, identity, and more. And, of course, we’ll talk about the magic of The Tempest. O brave new world, that has such people in it!
