The imagined childhood of the Big Bard himself….
A show for ages 4+ and their grown-ups about the childhood of William Shakespeare.
Bursting with live music, puppetry and a wealth of brilliantly barmy historical inaccuracies, this 50-minute fun-filled show is performed in the ‘groundlings’ courtyard of the theatre delivering an interactive and engaging experience in a stunning historical setting.
Billy Shakes – Wonderboy embraces the joy of story-telling and is the perfect introduction to the delights of Shakespeare for children and adults alike!
