Review from Guidestar

My commitment to Shady Shakespeare Theatre Company began three years ago when I became a board member and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Working with the SSTC staff, fellow board members and especially with our fantastic volunteers, has been extremely rewarding. We are a passionate group and I am proud to be part of an organization that believes in the ability of Shakespeare’s works to speak to contemporary audiences.

like a full-time fundraiser who could guarantee that we would always be able to provide FREE Shakespeare in Sanborn Park.

I just joined the board this year after volunteering for 3 years. Shady puts on top notch productions and does an amazing job of creating a two story stage out in the middle of a remote park. It's something that every kid will remember about their summer up in the "Shady" grove. It's also a great group of people who work well together.

I'm proud to say I've been involved with Shady Shakespeare as a Board and committee member since 2005. It's been an absolute pleasure to assist what began as a fledgling theatre group on a shoestring budget grow into a diverse and active company that boasts three main stage shows a year, a growing summer theatre education program and other educational offerings. Shady Shakespeare does an excellent job of reaching out to it's audience and de-mystifying Shakespeare with unique interpretations, humor, creativity and energy. To hear the laughter and see the delight in the faces of the audience members (especially the youngsters!) during the productions is one of the reasons I enjoy assisting Shady in it's mission. These are kind, creative people who are producing a free-to-the-public, quality product for everyone.

The Great!

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

My children have watched the performances and understand everything. No small feat when you consider that these were children who made faces when I mentioned going to watch Shakespeare because they thought that "Shakespeare is too hard" to understand. Shady Shakespeare helps break down those kinds of misconceptions!

I would love to see Shady have administrative offices and a permanent theatre of it's own!
