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

Rating: 5 stars  

We usually attend one Shady Shakes performances a year and have always enjoyed ourselves. We donate enough to score the "Royal Seating" which offers comfort, a great view, plus free drinks and preferred parking -- it really is a great deal. But beyond the perks, the shows themselves are always a lot of fun and the company tries hard to bring the stories and characters alive in a way that a non-Shakespeare geek can understand and enjoy. It's especially gratifying to see kids from grade school to high school also having a good time at the shows.

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

making the works of Shakespeare entertaining and comprehensible to people of all ages and backgrounds.

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

being part of a totally volunteer-driven community to produce something meaningful that is a benefit to the local community.

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

extremely hard working, talented, imaginative, and resourceful.

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

get a permanent "home" for performances, storage, and rehearsals, as well as educational facilities.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
