Sword fights and sad tales? Must be Shakespeare
For kids: Every spring, Denver's students get to participate in a festival honoring the world's most influential playwright and poet.
Drumbeats and tambourines echoed off the high-rise buildings and into the bright May sky, as excited students waved school banners through the air and chanted, "Will Power, Will Power – Shakespeare!"
It's the 23rd annual Denver Public Schools Shakespeare Festival, a day that honors the most influential playwright and poet who ever lived.
