Third in the series, this script takes a step up in difficulty and length (90 minutes). It also begins to incorporate more Elizabethan language, such as “thee” and “thou,” along with expressions such as, “quoth I.” Famous speeches, including, “All the world’s a stage,” are minimally adapted. This play also includes several of Shakespeare’s original songs. Distinguished Professor M.E. Comtois writes of this adaptation: “I believe it is exactly what is needed to introduce Shakespeare to children. You found the language that can make the play funny to youngsters, but it also captures the lilt and flow of the words which will stay with them as they grow up.”
