My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Shakespeare & Company, Inc., Lenox, MA, USA
We appreciate Shakespear & Company on multiple levels. For many years we have attended performances. We have never been disappointed....the caliber of the actors--including the actors in training/students, the quality of the material, is truly inspiring. Conversations with students confirm our impression of the life-changing experience time spent with S&Co is for them. Indeed, we value S&Co so much it was a key reason for our deciding to retire to the area.
Over the years we have read with amazement the extensive outreach during the year, the number of students exposed to great works and the impact such exposure must have on them. We have attended numerous performances at which children of all ages have been in the audience. In an age increasingly online, to have children experience live theater, up close and personal, REAL, must stand out as unusual, if not unique, special, and not only thought-provoking, but fun!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
See above -- witnessing children in the audience and speaking with students/actors in training.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Expand its capacity to reach an even larger audience and impact more children.
