Shakespeare In Bits brings The Bard’s most popular plays to life through cleverly animated re-enactments, full audio and unabridged text in one comprehensive package, featuring:

  • Completely Unabridged Play Text: Understand and appreciate the linguistic richness of Shakespeare’s plays with the original play text, broken into easily digested 'bits'. In-line translation helps you to understand difficult words and phrases within the context of the original play text.
  • High-resolution Animated Reenactments: Each title includes hours of high-resolution animation with professional audio soundtrack, helping you to decode and comprehend Shakespeare's fertile prose quickly and efficiently. The text, presented side-by-side with animated action, is easy to follow with portions of text being highlighted as they are spoken in the play. The integrated combination of text, audio and graphics is designed to facilitate learners of varying abilities and learning styles.
  • Character Biographies: Biographies for each cast character can be accessed from the main play or through a dedicated cast feature. An illustrated character relationship map demonstrates key characters and their inter-relationships in the play.

An easy-to-navigate visual scene selection menu is also provided to help you to quickly get familiar with the play’s sequence of events or to jump to your scene of choice.

These little computer apps are really nice tools for reading/studying several Shakespeare plays. Especially nice is the ability to see the script as the characters are acting and to be able to pause and go in depth about the scene. For those who have Macs, I had to install the trial version of the software first - go all the way through the trial to view the first Act Scene 1. Then close out of the program and reopen and then register with the login/password provided. Otherwise, the software may not install the first Act of the play. They work ...(more)

I bought this for my 10 year old daughter who LOVE all things Shakespeare. This is an amazing program that makes it fun and is so interactive. I would not hesitate, especially if you have a child that loves computer work. She has been working through Macbeth at her own pace. I can't say enough about how ingenius this is.
AnnPC, Co-op Member
This is an excellent product. Both my students really enjoyed learning this way. It was a good way to bring understanding to the, sometimes difficult, realities of Shakespearean English.
S.Stewart, Co-op Member
My 11yr old son has loved having Shakespeare in Bits. It's enhanced his understanding and enjoyment of a sometimes difficult subject. It's also a great way to memorize scenes.
Tiffany, Co-op Member
We are using Shakespeare-In-Bits as a supplement to other work we are doing and the kids have found it to be fun and interactive. We were only working on "A Midsummer Night's Dream" but now my kids want to do all the works available. I would recommend this to others who want to expose their children to Shakespeare...which everyone should!
Janis K, Co-op Member
My 11-year old loves this! We've just finished Romeo & Juliet. My son loves knowing where famous quotes come from and hearing the great story. I like that he is getting exposure to the beautiful language of Shakespeare and we can talk meaningfully about prose, blank verse, imagery, etc. It's all there in these programs.
T Robinson, Co-op Member
I was very pleased with our version of Midsummer Nights Dream. I was not sure how I was going to handle teaching Shakespeare as it has been a very long time since I have read it. SIB was easy to use and very informative. The animation is very basic, but just fine for what you use it for. The information and translations were so helpful and interesting. I would gladly use it again.
Barb, Co-op Member
SIB is one of our favorite classroom additions. I would like to list just a few reasons why this program was an instant hit with us. 1. Friendly! Younger children are not overwhelmed with the topics, because it is presented in a friendly animated format. 2. Animation = 100% Shakespeare. The audio presentation is excellent and the words are true to the plays. 3. Additional understanding is offered with Synopsis, Notes, and the script available before each scene. 4. In the script, lesser known words are highlighted and synonyms are put in pla...(more)
KH, Co-op Member
This is absolutely the best method to for young people to enjoy and learn about Shakespeare. Not only do you have the story before, but you also get analysis and background information. The story comes alive for the person looking and watching. You can read along while enjoying animation. My daughter loves Shakespeare because of this program. I give 5 stars.
Vickie B., Co-op Member
My family and I love Shakespeare-In-Bits! I'm an acting teacher, so I'm picky about drama. The actors doing the voice-over work for the animation are top-notch. The summaries, translations and character descriptions are very helpful for understanding the plays. Being able to read along as you're watching the animation and listening to the actors really drew us in and kept our attention. I asked my 11 year old daughter after some of the scenes if she understood what was happening, and her level of comprehension surprised me. I would defini...(more)
