Shakespeare created magnificent poetic theatre, but he started with great stories. Kings, queens, fairies, magic; many of his stories read like classic fairy tales.

We begin with a brief interactive discussion of who Shakespeare was. Then through questions, Mr. Kelly draws his audience into telling the story with him.
