I have followed Marin Shakespeare for almost 20 years and have continuously been impressed with the artistic quality of performances that need to be seen to be appreciated. I have also been to many Shakespeare centers such as Ashland, OR, and, although they need money for costumes, lighting and stage settings, the artistic performance is unsurpassed. I have been pleased enough to join the Board of Directors in order to help reach the goals of finding additional money and community awareness

I love outdoor theatre at night, under the stars, so Marin Shakespeare Company makes many summer nights happy for me. Their productions are superb and unique from one to the other. I know I can trust the artistic excellence of directors and actors to put on a splendid show. MSC also has a huge educational emphasis that many people don't realize. They are a tremendous force in theatre for children of the San Francisco bay area, filling such a critical need.

The first time I went to Marin Shakespeare many years ago, I was blown away by the quality of theater available so close to home at Forest Meadows. Over the past 10+ years, my wife and I have continued to be delighted and entertained. Each summer brings delightful new treats!

I've been attending the Marin Shakespeare Company performances for many years and watched these fine productions become fabulously outstanding. For my family and friends It's been a marvelous way to gather for picnic or an on site dinner & talk before the performance. Outdoors, in Domincan University's Forest Meadows we've seen rainbows and stars lend magical touches to the plays. . Now that I have the good fortune to be a volunteer I've come to realize that this great gift to our community has been brought about by talents and old fashioned hard work of Lesley and Bob Currier. They are the real magic, the genial forces that have given us this gift of remarkable theatre.
