Upstart Crow podcasts

Upstart Crow Youth Shakespeare Troupe, formerly known as Shakespeare in St. Anthony Park, has taken its theatrical productions to podcasts.

This summer, the youth group created, “Lend Me Your Earbuds: A Pandemic Shakespeare Podcast Series.” Youth actors from the St. Anthony Park neighborhood tell three of Shakespeare’s beloved stories, “Hamlet,’’ “Julius Caesar’’ and “Macbeth’’ in three episodes.

Using Shakespeare’s words and themes as their touchstone, the actors give each of the plays their own unique, contemporary and authentically Shakespearean treatment. You can find the productions on Apple Podcasts at preview at “Lend Me Your Earbuds.”
