People come from all over the world to witness the magic, as the tiny actors bring the Bard's words to life. The children not only act, but supplement the production with flawlessly played music ranging from Radiohead to Vivaldi.

The choreography, musicianship, and acting have brought rave reviews from such notables as Sir Peter Hall, Michael York, and Hal Holbrook.
