LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- The 61st annual Kentucky Shakespeare Festival continues throughout the summer.

WDRB's Keith Kaiser spent some time at the new Kentucky Shakespeare headquarters in Old Louisville.

The FREE performances of some of Shakespeare's great works will capture the family's attention.

And the kids could participate in Camp Shakespeare through mid-August.

Camp Shakespeare creates opportunities for children and young adults ages 5-18 to explore the theatre arts through imaginative play, visual arts, movement, storytelling, language and more.

Their philosophy is to immerse young actors in Shakespeare’s ideas and words.

Teaching them how to use their voices, bodies, and thoughts to create great works of art.

This unique summer camp experience promotes collaboration, confidence, and the desire for lifelong learning.
