We hope you’ll read along with us!

The Colorado Shakespeare Festival is excited to announce a fun way for kids to connect with Shakespeare while staying safe at home—CSF Storytime! Together, we will read Megan McDonald’s book, “Stink: Hamlet and Cheese.” Inspired by CSF’s very own Shakespeare’s Sprites, it’s about a young boy’s adventures at Shakespeare camp. CSF’s Director of Outreach, Amanda Giguere, will read one chapter at a time on video (with permission from Candlewick Press), followed by a virtual Q&A with the author. We hope you’ll read along with us, and send us your questions for Megan McDonald!
