Win a family ticket to Billy Shakes Wonderboy! at Shakespeare's Rose Theatre!

This year for the first time, children can enjoy the unique experience of watching a show in Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre with a show that’s tailor-made for kids. Billy Shakes – Wonderboy is the perfect introduction to the Bard for children and grown-ups alike, ideal for fans of Horrible Histories. This brand new show for children aged 4+ and their grown-ups is an exciting and irreverent retelling of William Shakespeare’s childhood, performed inside the replica Elizabethan theatre beside Clifford’s Tower in York. 
Join Billy Shakes and his two mates as he discovers his voice and the tales that have captivated the world for centuries. Bursting with live music, puppetry and a wealth of brilliantly barmy historical inaccuracies, this 50-minute fun-filled show is performed in the open air ‘groundlings’ courtyard of the theatre (dress for the weather!). With a running time of just under an hour, and taking place during the day, it’s been programmed to fit into your family summer.
