Zombie Shakespeare
Presented by Southern Shakespeare Company
Grades 6-8 • January 9, 10 & 11, 2017

Zombie Shakespeare is a highly improvisational romp which begins when Cinderella, Snow White, Goldilocks, Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty pry open Shakespeare’s coffin because they want different stories. Shakespeare recasts them in scenes from his plays, Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, Macbeth, and three scenes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Highly entertaining, with just enough bites of Shakespeare to please every palate!
