"It captures the spirit of dramatic literature and the creativity of adolescence to craft a life-altering experience."
--Marion Zens, Actor
"On top of learning about Shakespeare's great pieces, we can hang out and get to know one another to create realistic relationships on stage, and in life. The people at this program show you a side of theater that one may have never thought of before."
--Samantha Abrams, Actor
"My daughter comes back from her days just beaming and in her mind Shakespeare and fun are inextricably tied. But to say that the program is just about fun would be very far from the truth; the program seems to me to be more about learning how to set a huge goal, working hard to achieve that goal, perfecting a skill, and participating fully in community. The kids at the Funnery learn to listen to each other, take constructive feedback from their peers, work together on common goals, accept the limitations of others and their own limitations, and really become a family with all of the participants. By the end of the two weeks these kids are inseparable."
--Cynthia Ryan, Parent
"Ever since I started I've advanced so much in every aspect of drama. It's amazing. That's one of the contributing factors for why I keep coming back; you make friends, you learn skills and at the end of two weeks you put on a great Shakespeare play. No doubt, this is an awesome program!"
--John Marshall, Actor
"The experience there has been of greater benefit to her development, both intellectually and in terms of her self confidence, than any other program offered in this community."
--Paul Galdone, Parent
