Shakespeare for Kids: Under The Greenwood Tree Primary Times Children's Choice Awards Review


Shakespeare for Kids is a highly interactive bit of fun in the Gardens of St Peters on Lutton Place with lots of audience participation.

Affable William Shakespeare (constantly trying to match his outfit to the changing weather) is joined by a band of his famous characters to introduce some of the more fun bits of his works to the younger generation.  

The lively and animated actors are great with the kids and work really hard to get everyone singing, dancing and involved in the acting as well.      

A highlight for me was when my daughters (the Montagues) were exchanging insults with another family (the Capulets) ye olde style.  Mini thespians will love it!  There were comfortable mats to sit on and even a supply of umbrellas in case of a short shower – apparently the show is held inside the church if the weather is wet.  

The venue is easy for buggies and there are toilets in the main church building.

Child's Quote

Madeleine 8 said – do I have to tell you my favourite part?  I liked it all.  The actors are very well trained for this job.  

Grace 4 reported – It was all so good!  I was in the show!  I got to be the page boy with the fairy king and queen.  

Elsa 4 said – I liked the smelly farty dog bit.
