Review for Colorado Shakespeare Festival, Boulder, CO, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have been attending CSF productions for over 40 years, seeing the growth and maturity of the ensemble over time. What started as an "amateur" festival, with local talent, has become a truly professional enterprise. Though the plays remain pretty much the same (the addition of non-Shakespeare works began several years ago), the polish of the presentations and the level of acting has increased greatly. I particularly like the setting of Shakespeare's plays in times and locales far from their original intent, showing just how universal Shakespeare can be.

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

Getting to know the staff, actors, and other board members, and feeling like my own talents can help to further the goals of the organization.

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

Enthusiastic and dedicated to furthering the scope of the festival

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

Expand its season, perhaps lower ticket prices (especially for youth and seniors) and make Shakespeare even more available to the community.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
