Paul Barry claims ‘Of course.  Kids love music, and poetry is music’.

 

Poetry is NOT music. Of course.

I was an avid proponent of taking children to performances of Shakespeare in the years-ago discussion, citing my own experience of seeing—and being enthralled by—Othello at age 5. I was distinctly in the minority during within the Conference, but I have not creased to advocate for WS early and often. On the Sunday in 2012 nearest the date celebrated as the Bard’s Birthday the Unitarian church where I sing in the choir invited me to do a lecture/testimonial/performance, including a special invitation to the Sunday school kids to come with me to see our local high school’s production of 12th Night. That went pretty well—and the high school did a fearless, funny, full-hearted show that earned its standing O.
