In the Park
Shakespeare on the Sound welcomes children to come see our production in Pinkney Park each summer. To help them fully enjoy and understand the show, we provide fun, educational experiences for kids in the park every night before the mainstage production!
The A Midsummer Night's Dream Pre-Show for Kids is a 30-minute show written and performed by the Shakespeare on the Sound Players (from our Apprentice Company) that runs before every show at 6:30. Full of whimsy, humor, and audience interaction, the pre-show is a fun way to acquaint your kids with the mainstage production, and is enjoyable for kids and adults alike!
Located at the front of the park is our Education Tent, which is open every night before each performance. The tent is staffed by our Apprentice Company and features fun arts and crafts, as well as many interactive activities that teach kids about Shakespeare's life and the mainstage production. Kids can pick their own Shakespeare names, learn about unique words Shakespeare coined, create production-themed crafts, and do other activities!
