billy shakes:
wonderboy!

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!
