Review for Shakespeare & Company, Inc., Lenox, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In addition to the great theater performances for visitors and locals, Shakespeare and Co. runs and absolutely outstanding educational program. The "Fall Festival" has to be seen to be believed. Its crazy to think that anyone could get 100's of teenagers eagerly packing themselves into a theater, hooting and hollering for Shakespeare, but they do exactly that year-after-year. 10 regional high schools, each having worked under the direction of a S&Co director, come together for a long weekend of non-stop Shakespeare, showing off their efforts and cheering on the other schools. Its hard to imagine this working, but it does and admirably so.

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

Bringing theater alive for regional high school students.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get them on a firm financial footing!

Role:  Donor & Audience member at professional performances, parent of Fall Festival participant.
