Do You Need to Be Introduced to Shakespeare Again?
Plays were meant to be enjoyed as a stage performance. Many people have only ever been exposed to Shakespeare as a torturous read forced on them by a passionless teacher in high school. These performances are free and held on a summer stage in Central Park where you can enjoy the outdoors while you appreciate the actors' performances and their interpretations of the centuries old plays. Newbies may benefit from a quick internet search for a plot overview of the play being attended. A little bit more understanding from reading a synopsis in modern English will go a long way in helping you enjoy the performances.
Kentucky Shakespeare is available for people of all ages to visit Central Park and sample a nice segment of William Shakespeare's work over a couple of months this summer in a family-friendly environment. Kentucky Shakespeare has a full menu of summer camp options for the young Bard in your life.
