pretty happy funny real Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night's Dream & Cymbeline

Cymbeline's evil queen (14) was pretty, happy, funny and real throughout the play.
Boy (7) recited Snout/Wall's long speech very well!
"Out of doubt, he (Bottom) is transported!"- true emotion!
sweet hearts- one and all!
"Sometime a horse I’ll be, sometime a hound, a hog, a headless bear, sometime a fire" (really Puck's line- but the play is shortened and adapted for the wee folk)
below: Baby Girl (5) also played the role of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons
 Cymbeline has many small parts; Girl #1 (15) played 8 characters in the course of the night!


  1. Their performances were well worth the trip. They are so talented and I am finally learning about Shakespeare. He's quite a guy. Thanks for the memories.

  2. Delightful! I hope someday to organize a Shakespeare acting group for our local homeschoolers, though I think realistically that won't happen till my older ones are a bit older. What wonderful memories and an amazing learning experience.
