At: Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre, Tower Street, York
Billy Shakes: Wonderboy! is a brand-new show for ages 4+ and their grown-ups about the childhood of William Shakespeare, performed inside the inspiring space of a replica Elizabethan theatre – Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre beside Clifford’s Tower in York.
Join Billy Shakes and his two mates as he discovers his voice and the tales that have captivated the world for centuries since.
Bursting with live music, puppetry and a wealth of brilliantly barmy historical inaccuracies, this 50-minute fun-filled show is performed in the ‘groundlings’ courtyard of the theatre delivering an interactive and engaging experience in a stunning historical setting.
Billy Shakes: Wonderboy! embraces the joy of story-telling and is the perfect introduction to the delights of Shakespeare for children and adults alike!
