Testimonials & Reviews:
"Shakespeare Alive made a huge difference to my approach to studying Romeo and Juliet. My students understood the relevance of the play, and I noticed they were much more eager to work through the play as result of having seen the show."
"I can’t wait to have you back again next year. Your actors were professional and had a real talent for connecting with young people. They got my students interested in the play, and they were more interested in the language than they had been before... so much so that many of them went ahead and read the play by themselves!"
"Our kids loved the show! From the moment the show began, you had them hooked"
