Description

Five-star smash-hit Shakespearience returns! The Bard's best-loved works burst into life in this high-octane, whistle-stop tour of three of Shakespeare's plays, the perfect introduction for the next generation of budding Romeos and Juliets. 'Utterly hilarious... a wildly successful all-family show' ***** (Stage). Join Shakespeare's men as they fly through Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, and Twelfth Night in a whirlwind hour of mischievous storytelling. With tons of audience interaction, more than a dash of mayhem and a star turn from one lucky adult, Shakespearience is the perfect treat for all the family. **** (List).

Only 3 actors playing many parts. Oh but so talented! The performance was well choreographed and word perfect with highly skilled actor/actresses. I think some little background knowledge of the Shakespeare plays would enhance kids’ enjoyment and the age range should perhaps start a little higher. However the reviews in general belie this. An excellent show and well worth booking.

Exceedingly funny and we'll choreographed. Excellent balance of real Shakespeare and children's theatre. Fantastic

Fantastic show. Loved by adults and kids (7 yo and 5 yo). Extremely clever and funny show covering 3 Shakespearean plays. Interactions with audience excellent.
My 7 yo says - it was the best fringe show we have seen!
My 5 yo says - I loved the show and thought you were all fantastic!!!

Definitely worth going! Highly recommend.

Make sure you see this. Top quality, highly engaging, immense fun, energetic, vibrant and hilarious. Shakespeare surely wrote plays to bring joy and entertainment and this show meets and exceeds that aim, with no need for unnecessary overly precious reverence. It was my 5 year old's first taste of Shakespeare and she couldn't have hoped for a better introduction. And don't let the "audience participation" clause put you off; it all makes sense and noone is made a fool of.
Book and enjoy!

Fabulous for kids and adults. 7 and 9 year old boys loved it. Performers expertly changed characters with facial expressions and movements to tell the classic stories in a compelling and enjoyable way.

Very very funny. Would highly recommend. This was my favourite show of the fringe and a great way to get my 7 year old into Shakespeare.

5 ⭐. This was a brilliant show enjoyed by kids aged 5-11 and by the adults. The way in which it was produced and staged was great, with great energy from the cast. We were all really impressed and would highly recommend it.

The Wee Review (5/5 stars) 65 days ago

Shakesperience is indeed is a very positive and heart-warming experience. This trio of plays by these young trio of actors is definitely worth a punt if you want to expose your kid to Elizabethan theatre gently! Three twenty-minute bite sized chunks — a comedy, a tragedy and a romance —...

What's not to love about this show? From the get go, the incredibly talented cast of three maintained high energy performances which really could not be faulted. In one hour, they slickly told the stories of MacBeth, Romeo and Juliet and Twelfth Night, effortlessly transitioning between multiple parts, showing great versatility of characterisation.
