Shakespeare Story Theatre is an interactive retelling of one of Shakespeare’s plays that incorporates audience participation as a group and acting out the character’s actions in the play. Often they will also learn a song and dance that is a part of the story telling. Very improvisational, no prior practice or experience is needed to participate.
