  • – Fun games, educational activities, and actual performances both online and on the stage

Thank you to the City of Coronado Public Library for hosting this event!

Brendan Kelso has spent the past 17 years working with kids, educators, and parents from around the globe on how to engage their kids with Shakespeare. Being a playwright with a primary focus on Shakespeare for Kids and Classics for Kids, as well as directing over 150 productions with these titles, he has quite an extensive and unique insight to what makes Shakespeare resonate with kids from their early years through high school.
