My name is Lyn Adams I am the Executive Director of
Oklahoma Children's Theatre.  I am directing a
production of "Williams Window" in collaboration with
Oklahoma City University.  The production is a
wonderful way for children in grades 5 - 8 to be
introduced to Shakespeare in a fun and accessible
manner. It's set in a deserted cemetary, so with
MacBeth's witches and Hamlet's murdered father and
Romeo and Juliet... youcan imagine the thrills an
audience of that age will have, whilst being
introduced to important literature.

…Double , Double Toil and Trouble…

OKLAHOMA CITY— Oklahoma Children's Theatre in
collaboration with Oklahoma City University, Theatre
Department presents “Williams Window” by Marina
Stockdale. The ordinary turns extraordinary when three
witches do some scary double, double toil and trouble,
when passion and ultimately tragedy strikes two young
lovers and when the ghosts of dead Kings walk the
night! Kids, witches, ghosts and young love, a perfect
way to open windows into Shakespeare's wonderful world
of characters and stories.  The production runs
approximately 55 minutes.
