I acted in one of their shows and also teach for them. This is a wonderful company, bringing terrific productions of Shakespeare's plays (and others) to the outdoor summer stage. The work is always lively, engaging, and very entertaining. And their classes for kids bring the joys of acting and Shakespeare to hundreds of kids all over the Bay Area year in and year out.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being part of their wonderful productions and fine educational programs.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

is how dedicated they are to theater, and how down-to-earth they are.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely dedicated and warm--great people to work with!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

improve its sets and seating and costumes, and make their production values even more professional than they already are.

Marin Shakes is a special theater company because it touches so many diverse people in different ways. I was amazed at how they drew the entire community in to participate: from the children in 'Twelfth Night' and the school groups watching 'Julius Caesar' to the people completing community service hours watching avidly from the back of the theater. And, of course, working for Marin Shakes changed my life. I'll never forget that perfect summer, performing Shakespeare under the stars.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my direction in life. I came to realize during this summer, that if I'm not sharing the wonderful experience of live Shakespeare with people for the rest of my life, I'm not being true to myself.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I learned how to act. I learned why to act. I haven't stopped acting since.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredible role models. I still ask them for advice, and strive to be like them.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach more school children who think Shakespeare is boring, give more prison inmates the chance to act and express themselves creatively and allow more poor college kids like me the chance to pursue their passion for Shakespearean acting.

As a theatre goer and volunteer for Marin Shakespeare I see how hard and long they work to achieve their goals way beyond what you would expect. They treat their helpers who build sets etc with gret kindess, buying th em lunch many times as they realize that they don't have big saleries. My friends and I vie to hellp with ushering and hwlping with events etc. as we just like the energy and commitment they everyone has.

The Great!
