Shakespeare For The Young presents Adventures in Arden

Based on Shakespeare’s As You Like ItAdventures in Arden been created by Shakespeare For The Young as an interactive show for 3 to 10 year olds.

Children are introduced to a puppet of William Shakespeare, who helps start the story. Large bodied puppets, small hand-held puppets, and shadow puppets help tell the story of unkindness turned to love. Set in Africa, the story takes place in both city and country, in particular in the healing forest of Arden where love between two people blossoms and forgiveness between two sets of brothers takes place. Aided by interactive play with the audience, the actors engage children’s imaginations through Shakespeare’s words, using music of many African instruments as an additional medium. A short workshop for the children follows the play. Children use their bodies and voices to explore the rhythms and beats they heard in Shakespeare’s language during the play.

All The Way Live Tuesdays with Moluba and Friends

Moluba, is a Liberian American artist by way of Silver Spring, Maryland. His name was given to him by his great grandmother on her arrival to the U.S. from Liberia, when she escaped the civil war that had plagued the country most of Moluba’s young life. Being the eldest grand child, he was given the name of the patriarch of the family, his great grandfather. Moving with the spirit of his ancestors, Moluba comes with a diverse and gripping sound that mixes hip hop, jazz, spiritualism, and soul into a gumbo of genre bending magic. He is heavily influenced by his jazz trumpet background, and greats such as Bob Marley, Tupac Shakur, Miles Davis, and Lauren Hill.
