A new commission written by Gary L. Blackwood, based on his book of the same title. This tale follows Widge, a young orphan boy, as he hightails his way into the very heart of the Globe Theater and Shakespeare's company of players. As full of twists as a London alleyway, this entertaining story is rich in period details, colorful characters, villainy, drama and chuckles. Swordplay and wordplay share the stage with pure fun, all of which will keep audiences rapt to the final scene.
**Recommended for children ages 9 and up and their families.
