Review for California Shakespeare Theater, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son has had an excellent experience in the Cal Shakes summer conservatory as well as in Playshop. The Cal Shakes summer program is staffed by incredible teaching artists who also perform as part of the Cal Shakes theatre. The program is geared toward serious acting with the mindset that young children are capable of learning and understanding Shakespeare. Each program my son has been in has been rich with language, expert teaching and high expectations. As much as I might like to offer constructive suggestions, I have found the program to be quite exceptional. As a teacher educator, I can attest to the high level of teaching that goes on within the program and how well the students respond to being in such a well-managed environment.

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

My son has gained confidence, skills and friends and an abiding love for Shakespeare.

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

exceptional. Across the board, the teaching artists, student interns and administrators have been thoughtful, conscientious, kind and talented!

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

change the way many urban students perceive Shakespeare.
