9781453641545: Shakespeare's Hamlet for Kids: 3 Short Melodramatic Plays for 3 Group Sizes (Playing with Plays)

Hamlet like you have never read it before: quick, fun, and easy to understand. Designed for 6-20+ actors, kids of all ages, or anyone who wants to enjoy and loosely understand Shakespeare's play.

What you will get:

  • Fun!
  • 3 melodramatic modifications for group sizes:
    • 6-7+
    • 8-14+
    • 11-20+
  • Actual lines from Shakespeare's play mixed in
  • Creatively funny interpretations of the remaining script
  • A delightfully funny rendition that is easy for ADULTS to understand too!
  • A kid who loves Shakespeare!

This mini-melodramatic masterpiece is sure to be a doorway for your child to love all the classics. Shakespeare is difficult enough in class or watching on stage, let alone trying to teach the stories to children, but as the author's mantra states in the book, "there is no better way to learn than to have fun!" Kids who have read this have also eventually purchased Shakespeare's entire works and have completed 'hero' reports on Shakespeare at school. Guaranteed to have you coming back for more!

About the Author:

Brendan P. Kelso, known to the kids as Professor Peculiar because of his unique and humorous personality, came to writing modified Shakespeare scripts when he was taking time off from work to be at home with his son. "It just grew from there" Within months, he was being asked to offer classes in various locations and acting organizations along the coast of California. Employed as an engineer, Brendan never thought about writing. But he has always stated, "There is no better way to learn than to have fun!" Brendan makes his home on the central coast of California and loves to spend time with his wife and son.
