Review for Silicon Valley Shakespeare, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been involved with Shady for 3 or 4 years, as a volunteer, as an attendee at shows and at events. I've helped with catering food, taking tickets and admission. I usually help with all of the major events put on through the year - 3 or 4 of them yearly. I have also donated money. I've found all of the people involved with Shady to be marvelous, passionate people really want to put on a tremendous show to share their love of Shakespeare. I'm pleased and proud to be a part of this wonderful organization.

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

Being a guest at the performances put on every summer in Sanborn Park. Shady puts on two different shows - two of Shakespeare's wonderful plays interpreted in different ways. They are always done professionally with tremendous talent and enthusiasm.

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

Getting to know and work with the people who make Shady tick.

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

Everyone is dedicated and does a fabulous job out of love and passion. They are friendly and welcoming; glad to share their love of Shakespeare with everyone.

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

Buy or build its own theatre and put on more shows every year!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
