Shakespeare is Elementary is an excellent program, introducing "the Bard" to a group of youngsters
who may not have had the experience to study and perform Shakespeare’s plays. The Children love acting,
memorizing and interpreting the several other play scenes they are given. Wonderful! Creative! Stimulating!
