THE BOY, THE BEAR, THE BARON, THE BARD
When a boy jumps the fence to retrieve his rogue soccer ball, he unwillingly finds himself on the stage of the world’s most famous theatre with The Bard by his side. What follows is pure midsummer magic framed by a whimsical chase through the streets of Elizabethan London. THE BOY, THE BEAR, THE BARON, THE BARD is an original adaptation of Gregory Rogers’ much-loved picture book.
WHY THEY’LL ♥ IT
This is a joyous romp through Gregory Rogers’ iconic book which makes the characters come to life – both on stage and on a giant screen. Students might also look forward to studying Shakespeare later in their school life as well – now that they have met the man himself.
WHY YOU’LL ♥ IT
You can compare the book to the performance, showing students how stories come to life through theatre, and how actors can transform from narrator to character through the power of performance.
