Four short plays, One fun-filled day!
The Children's Shakespeare Theatre (CST) presents a festival of one-act plays featuring plays by Moliere, Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton. One of these, As You Like It, will be touring to Stratford, Ontario when CST represents the USA at the 14th Annual World Festival of Children's Theater in June of 2016.
The festival kicks off with an all-day celebration at The Nyack Center on Depew Ave in Nyack. There will be a performance of each of the four plays during the day with concurrent events, vendors and food throughout the day. There will also be a special performance by The Sonnet Man, Devon Glover, who has been a featured performer at festivals around the world and who also appeared on the Today Show. The event showcases projects by four directors using 38 young actors to tell stories of love, disguise, trickery and ultimately great fun!

Patrons are invited to drop in at any time, see a play or two, and buy local wares and food. Patrons will receive an event bracelet so they can come and go throughout the day.
