The Centenary Stage Company is always looking to expand their outreach to local schools and bringing new theatre experiences to youth in Northwest New Jersey through programs like their Young Audience Series. And now this program is expanding to cover works by the most famous man in showbiz, William Shakespeare, with the new play "Shake It Up: Magic, Mystery & Mayhem" on Saturday, April 12 at 11 a.m. in The Little Theatre.

Celebrating the month of his birth is a piece of theatre magic for grades 4 and up covering some of his most famous works in an interactive and animated format such as "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," "Macbeth" and "Romeo and Juliet." This show simplifies Shakespearean language in a way that all audiences can understand and exhibits performance techniques in stage combat and classic slapstick comedy that were used in Elizabethan times and are still in practice today.

Shake It Up tickets are $12.50 for adults and $10 for children under 12. The Little Theater at 400 Jefferson Street in Hackettstown, N.J. This show is recommended for children in grades 4 and up. The Young Audience Series is sponsored in part by Target.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.centenarystageco.org, at the CSC Box Office in The Lackland Center at 715 Grand Ave in Hackettstown, or by calling 908-979-0900. The box office is open Monday through Friday 1 to 5 p.m.
