S4KWelcome, Spring! And welcome to a new season of the Shakespeare for Kids Library Club!

Shakespeare for Kids is a great opportunity for children aged 7 to 12 to explore the world of magic, wizards, potions, ghosts, swords and witches in some of the greatest stories ever told. Actors and educators from the Shakespeare in Action Theatre Company coach and instruct kids in learning and playing theatre games, developing play-reading skills, creating and acting in scenes and more. Children read and explore some of Shakespeare’s plays, including Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Tempest. This free two-hour program is offered on six consecutive Saturdays this spring from April 6 to May 11.

The program is free, thanks to the generous support of TD Bank Group.

Take a look at this wonderful photo essay celebrating World Theatre Day on the Shakespeare in Action blog, featuring pictures from the winter session at the Brentwood Branch. After this spring session, we won't see Shakespeare and his band of bards again until the fall, so be sure to register your child right away.

To register, please visit or call participating branches.
