Shakespeare 4 Kidz, the English company which aims to give children aged four to 14 a better chance to understand the Bard by making his works accessible, entertaining and relevant to modern times, is coming to Scotland in September with Macbeth.

The company, which has staged Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream, is touring the UK with its new production this term, but will make only one stop north of te border, at the Gaiety Theatre in Ayr on September 7 and 8.

To coincide with the tour, Shakespeare 4 Kidz is launching a Put on a Play pack for Macbeth, featuring a photocopiable script, musical score, a background music CD and teachers' guide, for around pound;200.
