Rap artist Devon Glover knows a thing or two about getting kids interested in learning about the arts. Known as The Sonnet Man, Devon sets Shakespeare's love sonnets to Hip Hop, a unique approach that brings Shakespeare to young audiences in a genre they know and love, introducing them to classical literature, raising literacy and a greater zest for learning, creativity and more.

Devon has partnered with long-time Broadway Playwright Arje Shaw to entertain and educate audiences and as The Sonnet Man, Devon delivers Shakespeare's sonnets as originally written, then broken down into the "spoken word."

Devon was recently featured on The Today Show and he will now be performing in Casper schools, Tues. Sept. 17 and Wed. Sept. 18.
