Read what our students have to say about their experience with the Livermore Shakespeare Festival:
“My participation was special because it was not just getting coffee for the director or folding programs, but I actually played a key role in putting on the show. This sort of experience greatly raised my confidence regarding my prospects in professional theatre.”
“Not only do you get to learn about "the business," but you have a blast doing it! The people that I met during my internship were such inspirations to me and I still keep in contact with many of them.”
“Working at the Livermore Shakespeare Festival was an excellent experience. I was able to learn more about stage management and acting by collaborating with working professionals from the Bay Area. The experience really helped me improve.”
“I was given full freedom to create the character I wanted in a purely organic way. Outdoor theatre is an experience that rivets me. There is nothing like the communion experience one gets when doing Shakespeare in the open.”
