Tuesdays in Brooklyn!

The ShakesBEARS are heading to Brooklyn.
Catch us every Tuesday at 3:30pm for a show and craft!


Lizzie Kings
75A 5th Ave., Brooklyn, NY

Tuesdays @ 3:30pm
Starting Nov. 12

Show + Craft


About the Venue:

Lizzie King’s Parlor is a modern New York neighborhood place reminiscent of the time, an “old-Brooklyn” bar for stories over a pour-over coffee, or a cold-brew direct from the tap, or a glass of wine and a charcuterie platter. Wherever you’re from, we hope Lizzie King’s will be one of your locals.

3 Weeks of Workshops!

We’re coming to ACD Playspace this November for three weeks of puppetry workshops!

Each Saturday, we’ll see a Shakespeare-inspired puppet show and learn about puppetry with a craft!


ACD Play Space
31-24 38th St., Astoria, NY

Saturdays @ 12pm
Nov. 9, 16, & 30

Show + Craft


Schedule

Week 1, Nov. 9: Storytelling and Crafting
The first puppet show is called “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” It involves magic that the children will need to help with! The children will craft their very own magic fairy puppets and use them throughout the show to help cast magic spells.

Week 2, Nov. 16: Puppets in Performance
This week the ShakesBEARS puppets will perform “Much Ado About Nothing,” and the children will craft their own paper hand puppets. We will explore how to use a puppet stage to create puppet theater. The children can create their own shows with their new puppets!

Week 3, Nov. 30: Up-cycled Object puppets
In the last week we’ll explore object puppetry. After a puppet version of “Love’s Labors Lost,” we’ll play with some everyday objects to see how they can express feeling and character. To finish, everyone will build their own fish puppet out of paper rolls for a “school of fish” puppet parade!

World Premiere!

Much Ado About Nothing

About the venue:

ACD is a Family Owned business which opened in November 2017, after the owner, who has provided in-home child care in Astoria for over 10 years, noticed a lack of activities, classes, and play for parents and children to enjoy on a daily basis.  ACD is proud to support moms and dads who themselves are entrepreneurs in the children arts/activity fields. Our goal is to provide a safe and educational space for children to learn and grow through exploring, music, dance and, most of all, PLAY!

Next Show! Friday, Aug. 16, 2019

Summer is still here! The perfect time to catch our next show, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

When four lovers in a tangled love square flee to the woods, the mischievous fairy, Puck, takes it upon himself to set them straight with a love potion.  Of course, he only succeeds in making things worse!  But does he feel bad about his mistake?  Nay!  He gleefully decides to watch the lovers’ shenanigans play out.

Afterwards the show we’ll be making sock puppets!
