Shakespeare's Kids was established by Sharon McNally (BA Hons) in 2012  following her studies  in both Literature and Language. The objective initially was to explore ways in which quality literature, in particular Shakespeare, could be made more appealing and approachable to young children of today. 
 
 Shakespeare's Kids  have managed to create a unique experience where children as young as five can not only enjoy the stories of Shakespeare's plays but actually become immersed in the the experience of becoming a literary character  through costume, props , film and musical theatre .
 
Drama, dance, music, film and costume were combined to encourage the children to create, perform and direct their version of Shakespeare's most popular works as well as their own unique musical theatre productions . 

 

To date the project has produced short films adaptations of

Macbeth 

A Midsummer Nights Dream 

Romeo & Juliet 

Filming has taken place a range of locations from local graveyards to Historical sites such as Stirling Castle to Stately home such as Chatelherault House Hamilton to Colzium Estate Kilsyth . 

 

The children have also ventured into musical theatre creating their own plays based on literatures & films classic heroes and villains  and most recently have tackled a full scale Broadway Musical .
