You are invited to enjoy Shakespeare’s play, Love’s Labour Lost, performed by The GENIUS Group’s classical acting scholars held on Friday, March 21st at 7 p.m. and Saturday, March 22nd at 3 p.m. These FREE performances are held at The Promise Church, 2010 West Menlo Avenue, Hemet.
In order to help you and your scholar extract the most laughter out of this comedy, I highly recommend you do the following prior to the play: learn the names of the principal characters, define key terms and read the plot summary. I also recommend listening to the play on audio so you and your child have time to adjust your hearing to the master wordsmith’s words.
