Re. "Never too young to read Shakespeare" (A Good Read, The Tri-City News, Feb. 2).
I read with interest librarian Lori Nick's column about reading Shakespeare to her daughter. Being exposed to Shakespeare at an early age can, indeed, set up a lifelong love of his magical language and compelling stories.
I just wanted to let readers know that reading Shakespeare isn't the only way for kids and youth to learn about and experience his works. Let's face it, Shakespeare's plays were written to be performed.
Thus, Place des Arts is thrilled to bring Bard on the Beach's popular Young Shakespeareans Workshop to Tri-Cities youth at spring break this year. It is the first time Bard on the Beach has offered this workshop in the Tri-Cities and Place des Arts is hosting it for from March 21 to April 1.
Any readers who know a middle school youth who might be interested in this great opportunity can call Place des Arts at 604-664-1636 or visit www.placedesarts.ca.
