Review for Marin Shakespeare Company, San Rafael, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Marin Shakes is a special theater company because it touches so many diverse people in different ways. I was amazed at how they drew the entire community in to participate: from the children in 'Twelfth Night' and the school groups watching 'Julius Caesar' to the people completing community service hours watching avidly from the back of the theater. And, of course, working for Marin Shakes changed my life. I'll never forget that perfect summer, performing Shakespeare under the stars.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my direction in life. I came to realize during this summer, that if I'm not sharing the wonderful experience of live Shakespeare with people for the rest of my life, I'm not being true to myself.

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

I learned how to act. I learned why to act. I haven't stopped acting since.

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

incredible role models. I still ask them for advice, and strive to be like them.

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

reach more school children who think Shakespeare is boring, give more prison inmates the chance to act and express themselves creatively and allow more poor college kids like me the chance to pursue their passion for Shakespearean acting.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
