Theatre for Young Audiences – A Summer’s Winter Tale
A Summer’s Winter Tale
by Nancy Steele Brokaw
Directed by Lori Adams
Have you ever been so mad that you could not think straight? That is what happens to Leo, King of Ewingland, in A Summer’s Winter Tale. His anger lights the fuse of this fast-paced tale of love and betrayal, ocean voyages and bear chases, a prince, a princess, and a super mysterious statue. Come learn about Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale in the middle of summer! Hear real Shakespeare words – but not too many. This show also teaches young audiences about second chances and what it means to say, “I messed up. I’m sorry.”
Run Time: Approximately 40 minutes with no intermission.
Thursday, July 1, 2021 at 10 a.m. [Updated 6/30/21: Du to unforeseen circumstances, the July 1 performance has been canceled. Thank you for your interest and hope to see you at a later performance!]
