Bruce Coville does a wonderful job at adapting these four Shakespearean greats for children. You can get them as story/illustrated books as well, they are fantastic.
Two of the plays are told by one narrator, the other two use a full cast for characters. Both ways were fun, but the full cast definitely adds a lot of charm.
I watched a group of 11-14 year old kids listen to this version of "Twelfth Night" to familiarize them with the storyline in preparation for performing the play. I loved watching them laugh and really "get" the plot, humor & all of it. Twelfth Night is one of the "full cast" productions and it is really full of humor. Duke Orsino is so well played, whiny, silly love-sick voice and all.
I would definitely suggest this audio and/or the accompanying books as introductions to Shakespeare.
