In this all new program, we invite audiences to guess which words we still use today that Shakespeare actually invented. The results may surprise you, and they will certainly surprise the audience, for Shakespeare invented over 1,700 words that we still use today! Using live performance, multiple choice Q&A, and a LOT of volunteer opportunities to engage our audiences, our new elementary touring production is an educational and hilarious 50-minute program featuring scenes from some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays. Six beautifully detailed rotating panels serve as our backdrops as we change scenery right before the audience's eyes! Our elementary school production with vibrant costumes, clowning, slapstick and lots of humor will enrapture audiences from grades 2-6.

To book this production or for more information, please contact our Education Associate Julie Osborne Watts at 214-559-2778 or josborne@shakespearedallas.org.
