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!

This production was first created to tour to community venues, libraries and schools​ in 2017 supported by Arts Council England and Creative Scene, before it's second incarnation and redevelopment into an outdoor performance piece for Shakespeare's Rose Theatre York in August 2019. ​
