Artist Spotlight: Shakespeare Guyz

The Shakespeare Guyz is like Shakespeare, the Coming Attractions, a fast-paced, humorous, compilation of scenes and pieces of scenes all brought together to entertain, educate and inspire. Our objective is to present a very user-friendly invitation to delve deeper into the best plays ever written. Theatre, masks, mime, storytelling; a lot of audience participation. A variety of scenes and vignettes from Shakespeare?s plays that are designed to engage the audience and make it easier for them to understand Shakespeare?s language and what is going on in the plays.
