This event has passed

Celebrating its 5th season as one of Two River’s most popular programs, A Little Shakespeare engages young artists and audiences alike with the work of the Bard. Two sets of identical twins, separated at birth + several cases of mistaken identity = hijinks ensue in Shakespeare’s great comedy! Last season, 28 students from 12 area high schools participated in this theatrical adventure. Don’t miss seeing the madcap magic our local youth create this year under the guidance of a team of professional theater artists
