Bille the Bard’s Puppet Playhouse is a new hands-on educational puppetry program for elementary-aged learners created by Scenic City Shakespeare with funding from the Tennessee Arts Commission. Through scenes from Shakespeare’s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM, learners will experience classic text and engage in a magical story alongside puppet characters. Billie the Bard leads puppet students through Social Emotional Learning challenges as they work together in rehearsal and learn about Shakespeare’s words and world.
