"Our Gang meets Shakespeare" : In these delightful adaptations of two of Shakespeare’s plays, kids (and adults!) are introduced to the stories behind "The Merchant of Venice" and "A Winter’s Tale." It’s a fun and free way to help kids gain a better grasp of the language and tales of Shakespeare, and will warm you up for the full-length productions to be performed this Spring by Austin’s professional theatre companies.

The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
