Hip to Hip Theatre: Henry IV, Part 1
SUNDAY AUGUST 6, 2017
Kids & The Classics | 4:30 PM
Performance: HENRY IV, PART 1 | 5 – 6:30 PM
Prince Hal is caught between two worlds: in the tavern, he carouses with a wild bunch, led by the scoundrel Falstaff, but at court, the King presses him to shoulder his responsibilities as heir to the throne. Meanwhile, the rebellious Hotspur threatens to destroy the kingdom. Shakespeare’s action-packed coming-of-age story asks “What makes a good leader?”
Kids & the Classics is the companion piece to Hip to Hip’s program of “Free Shakespeare in the Parks.” This free interactive workshop is offered 30 minutes before every performance, and is designed for children ages 4 to 12. It gives children a chance to interact with the text by previewing the characters and situations, and creating links between the text and their own lives through theatre games and close reading of text.
FREE. NO RSVP REQUIRED.
Shakespeare in the Park is presented in partnership with:
