Join Door Shakespeare for a casual pre-show gathering with activities designed to introduce patrons of all ages to the evening’s production.
We’ll review the characters in As You Like It, and take a look at the plot in order to have a better understanding of the story and enhance the theatrical experience. Designed with families in mind, Shake it Up Saturday includes activities to help get the wiggles out before the show begins and keep your family engaged throughout the show.

Russ Bickerstaff, of the Shepherd Express, attended Shake it up Saturday during the 2019 season. Read highlights below from his blog, The Small Stage.
“Theatre is universal. If it’s done well, there’s no reason that it shouldn’t be accessible on some level to everybody.”
“Door Shakespeare does a remarkably good job of drawing in the tiniest theatergoers with a Saturday pre-show program called ‘Shake It Up Saturday’.”
“Credit a talented Amy Ensign for drawing out some of that interest with an ambitious, little class, for ambitious, little theatergoers prior to the show.”
