AdminHistoryShakespeare's Music Hall was a proposed animation based on a play titled "Shakespeare's Music Hall, or, A little of As You Like It does you good", written by Colin Pearson. The animation was never fully produced.

As a play, "Shakespeare's Music Hall" was performed by amateur and semi-professional groups at private venues. The performance consisted of musical numbers, each linked by a narrator. The songs were old music hall numbers (out of copyright) with new original lyrics encapsulating the plots or character of Shakespeare's plays.

One description of the play states "A chance to revise everything you forgot about The Bard's plays but this time in Music Hall Style and rattling through in just over 55 mins!" (Ministry of Entertainment)

Script Colin Pearson
