Summer 2021 our Shakespeare in the Libraries production will be A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM, directed and adapted by Director of Education Kyle Ware. 

Thanks to the generosity of Louisville Metro Government, Kentucky Shakespeare is touring our free one-hour performance for young audiences to ten Louisville Free Public Library branches this summer. It’s a fun and free opportunity for families throughout the city to experience this accessible and creative take on Shakespeare’s work. During the interactive performance the actors engage with audience members and have the opportunity for post-performance discussion as well. The program is suitable for all ages.
