KDHX presents Shakespeare Festival St. Louis' Metro Youth Program April 25 and 26 at The Stage at KDHX.
Information and reservations available at Shakespeare Festival St. Louis online.
Modeled after a similar program at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, Metro Youth Shakespeare is an intensive semester-long “In the Schools” introduction to performing Shakespeare. The program, now in its 12th season, brings together teens from diverse backgrounds who otherwise might never have the opportunity work through an in-depth Shakespeare experience. Coordinated and advised by Shakespeare Festival St. Louis, more than 1,200 students have participated in the program and performed the Bard's work onstage. This year Metro Youth will be studying and creating selections from Henry V with six schools: Cahokia High School, Seckman High School, Windsor High School, St. Louis Homeschool Network, Lindbergh High School and Grand Center Arts Academy. The result will be a full-length production of Henry V performed at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, April 25-26. A 2 p.m. matinee performance will also be held on April 26.
