When the village Mayor decides to invite Shakespeare to their Spring Festival the local actors think it's the perfect audition opportunity, what could possibly go wrong!

While introducing Shakespeare to the students we work a fun script and create an interesting piece of choreography that fits right into that world.

 

In the end Shakespeare gains a whole new group of actors and decides that their montage could possibly become a brand new play!!
