RICHARD III

COMEDY OF ERRORS

All acted out by the Dachshund Shakespeare Cartoon Players!

I do these cartoon versions of Shakespearean plays prior to taking my own students to see live theatre. The cartoons give them an idea of the plot of the play so they don't feel lost. After 10 minutes or so, the students catch on, enjoy the play, and my job of supervision becomes much easier.

Sorry I can't put the "mainstream" plays (Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Julius Caesar et al) on the Web. They are copyright to J. Weston Walch, Publisher and are available in SHAKESPEARE MADE EASY: AN ILLUSTRATED APPROACH.

This site was prepared with help from Bill Kempthorne, Colin Welch, and Dale Halcrow, the Principal, who tolerates my obsessions. All I do is the dachshund and Shakespeare parts. I hope it helps you and your students or children to enjoy the Bard as much as I do.
