“Shaking Up Shakespeare”: a fun narrative about Helena and Robin as they come to visit their uncle in a play where Robin ends up shaking Mr. Shakespeare with his little antics. “Shaking Up Shakespeare” is the creation of published author Brian Eltz, a stay-at-home dad and an adjunct professor of English at Harrisburg Area Community College’s Lancaster Campus for over ten years. He enjoys volunteering at church, going to the movies, and trips to Gettysburg National Military Park.

Eltz writes, “William Shakespeare and his actors need to rehearse their most recent play. Young Helena wants to stay and watch, but her little brother Robin has his own antics to perform. To Shakespeare’s dismay, Robin runs wild around the theater, disrupting all his efforts to rehearse. Will Helena be able to rein her little brother in, or is Shakespeare going to have to call their mother? Poor Will may suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune, but the show must go on!”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Brian Eltz’s new book hands the young readers a delightful creation that tells a story of Shakespeare’s disrupted theater rehearsals. Will the kids and the playwright be friends? Or will this end worse than expected?
