Shakespeare For The Young is a company of puppeteers and designers dedicated to bringing Shakespeare's stories and poetry to young audiences through the medium of puppets. Their mission is to bring Shakespeare's poetry and wisdom to children and families.  This summer, Shakespeare For The Young is presenting Adventures in Arden based on Shakespeare’s As You Like It.  Aided by interactive play with the audience, the actors engage children's imaginations through Shakespeare's words, using music of many African instruments as an additional medium. A short workshop for the children follows the play. The goal is to provide children with a fun, interactive cultural experience that will encourage language growth, risk-taking creativity, and empathy for others. This programs is for ages are 3-10.
