Hip to Hip Theatre Company is dedicated to stimulating and developing interest in the theatre arts in underserved communities by providing free, family-friendly, professional productions of popular classics, and free theatre workshops for children, in public spaces. This year, The Winter's Tale and A Midsummer Night's Dream will tour in repertory to nine parks. Plus, an interactive children's workshop Kids & the Classics will be offered thirty minutes before each performance.

The Winter's Tale
King Leontes falsely accuses his pregnant wife of infidelity with his best friend. Consumed by jealousy, he makes a series of catastrophic decisions that tear his family apart and leave his newborn daughter abandoned. Sixteen years later, can time bring healing and reconciliation?

A Midsummer Night's Dream
Four young lovers escape the tyranny of the court to find love in a magical forest. On the same night and in the same forest, the king and queen of the fairies declare war on each other, and a company of amateur actors meet to rehearse a play. See what happens when a mischievous sprite called Puck weaves their three stories into one.

Kids & the Classics
Kids & the Classics 
is the companion piece to Hip to Hip's program of "Free Shakespeare in the Parks." This free interactive workshop is offered 30 minutes before every performance and is designed for children ages 4 to 12. It gives children a chance to interact with the text by previewing the characters and situations and creating links between the text and their own lives through theatre games and close reading of text.
