Unique easy-to-understand MUSICAL adaptations of Shakespeare's plays form the basis of a complete understanding of his work.
In the recent MUSE OF FIRE documentary, it was revealed that 50% of the world’s schoolchildren study Shakespeare.
Julian Chenery and Matt Gimblett’s brilliant musical theatre adaptations of six of Shakespeare’s classic plays remain one of the best way for children and young people to engage with Shakespeare.
Removing the language barrier, working in predominantly contemporary and understandable dialogue blended with the famous sequences from the original text and framed in an enjoyable Musical Theatre format, Shakespeare 4 Kidz remains “the ideal introduction to Shakespeare”.
At the core of S4K's work are our easy-to-understand musical adaptations of Shakespeare's plays, and there are some great ways for YOU to start understanding Shakespeare today:
Plans are being finalised to revive two classic S4K productions in 2017 and 2018.
S4K's TWELFTH NIGHT will tour selected UK theatres in spring 2017 and then internationally across the Arabian Gulf and beyond. The last professional production of the show was an eight month UK tour in 2001.
S4K's HAMLET - last produced in 2007/8 - will return in the early part of 2018.
It is expected to announce tour dates and production partners in September 2016.
