LUDLOW-Be a part of something exciting this summer at the Fletcher Memorial Library in Ludlow. Join Jamie Ward, teaching artist and professional actor, in a one-day workshop entitled "Playing with Shakespeare" and be a star of the stage.
This half-day workshop is just for kids and includes lots of fun exercises, games and a short performance at the end for family and friends.
You will have a chance to delve into the life of the world's greatest poet, William Shakespeare; learn how to expand your breath in order to say lots of words without getting tired; find out how to walk and move on stage as well as act with a group of your peers; be part of a ghost story and witness the lives of Romeo and Juliet, and play fun action/memory games like "Ratsbane, Foresworn and Flibbertygibbet."
The fun starts Thursday, June 30, at 1 p.m., at the Fletcher Memorial Library. Family and friends are invited to a potluck picnic on the lawn at 5 p.m. with a performance directly after at the United Church at 48 Pleasant St. in Ludlow.
