Grab the family and dive into the wonderful world of Shakespeare with Houston Shakespeare Festival’s (HSF) Kids Day at Stimley-Blue Ridge Neighborhood Library!
Join the folks responsible for bringing top-quality Shakespeare productions to Houston each summer for fun Bard-themed arts and crafts. Kids will have the chance to decorate crowns, snap photos in Shakespearian garb, create quill pens, design coats of arms, and more. There will even be a broadsword from one of HSF’s upcoming productions on site.
Kids Day is a natural extension of HSF’s community focus, says their Director of Outreach Cori Stevenson. Since 1975, HSF has presented two free plays at the Miller Outdoor Theatre each summer in an effort to share the spectrum of Shakespeare’s work – from classic tragedies to whimsical comedies – with Houston. This season, HSF offers the best of both worlds. For their 44th Season, Houston Shakespeare Festival presents Shakespeare's gripping tragic masterpiece, "Hamlet," and "The Comedy of Errors," a riotous farce of mistaken identity
HSF’s 2018 season kicks off on July 27 and runs through August 5. Learn more at HSF’s website.
