Best Bits

Join Shakespeare’s Men as they fly through Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet and Twelfth Night in a whirlwind hour of mischievous storytelling. With tons of audience interaction, more than a dash of mayhem and a star turn from one lucky adult (shhhhh don't tell!)

  • Is Shakespeare difficult to understand? Is Shakespeare boring? Is Shakespeare old hat? NO! NO! NO!
  • Fresh from a West End run the "utterly enthralling" Shakespearience is back
  • A fresh fun-filled look at six of William Shakespeare's greatest plays
  • Enjoy three of the Bard’s best plays in a wacky and wonderful production for ages 7+ and their families
  • Scenes and pieces from The Merchant of Venice, The Tempest, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo and Juliet. 
  • A wonderful way to get the kids interested in Shakespeare
