My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Shakespeare Youth Festival (formerly Los Angeles Drama Club, Inc), Los Angeles, CA, USA
I've been volunteering with this organization for almost two and a half years now and could never have even begun to guess what a huge impact this small, but immensely influential club could have on the kids. Especially with the Shakespeare in the City program, but also in all programs, the kids gain a confidence and power to make themselves heard. They transform from believing that their thoughts and feelings and even their very being are inconsequential to understanding the huge significance of their human life. This hiding person is unlocked through the emotions of characters and eventually of the kids' own repressed ones, as they learn to harness these powerful sentiments and proceed to use them productively as the succeed in creating art. Come to any show and this will be evident to you and every member of the audience.
