Entertaining and engaging for all in the family, a tale of young love and loss served with sensitivity and humour, characteristic of the renowned KL Shakespeare Players. This 60-minute interactive child-friendly storytelling, for 6-year-olds and above, is set in a garden and performed in English by three actors. The serious moments in the show unfold with age-appropriate images. The storytellers also sprinkle in some of Shakespeare’s words. The show is developed to enable young audiences to sing, chant along, dance, and answer questions.

KL Shakespeare Player

From an informal group that started in 2011, we have established ourselves as the only theatre company in Malaysia that focuses on Shakespeare’s works. Each year, we draw a diverse audience to watch Shakespeare performed live. We do so without running away from his language.
 
Our production in 2017, SD: Macbeth has traveled to 14 locations, performed more than 40 shows to over 6500 pairs of eyes. Apart from KL, we have traveled to Langkawi, Penang, Ipoh, Nilai, Seremban and Johor Bahru. And overseas to Manila, Philippines; and Seoul, South Korea.

It is our mission to take Shakespeare to every state in Malaysia, and eventually to all countries in Southeast Asia.
 
Beyond our annual Shakespeare Demystified series, we actively provide training and workshops based on the concept of “Learning Through Shakespeare”. We work with students from primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities to deepen their appreciation of the Bard, to improve their communication skills, or to explore various stage crafts, all rooted in Shakespeare’s text and works.
 
To contribute to theatre development locally, we also provide free training sessions to actors dedicated to honing their skills. We generously share our ideas, knowledge and experiences in making good theatre. We hope to help expand the pool of actors who are serious about their work, and who appreciate that true artists do not avoid hard work.​​
