Jennie created wonderful props and costumes for Austin to wear while reading excerpts, and for kids in the audience to wear while re-enacting moments from Shakespeare’s plays, like this young man who was transformed into Bottom from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and this adorably terrifying bear from A Winter’s Tale.
