my life this weekend.  I am profoundly grateful.”

“An absolute joy to work with, and an honor to have perform on our stage.”  
—The Alden Theatre, McLean, Virginia

“Both of the Shakespeare performances were absolutely fantastic.  It was amazing to sit in the front row; I felt like was actually there.  My favorite part was when they pulled me during the gravedigger [scene], to drink a glass of water, and die. That's a level of interactiveness which I've never experienced in any other play.”
Student at Union College, Schenectady, New York

"We could not have been more pleased …What a FANTASTIC night of theatre!"
 —Louisiana Tech University, Ruston, Louisiana

"Wonderful experience for our Theatre and our Town!” 
—Sunset Theatre, Asheboro, North Carolina

“Thank you so much for bringing those 'black marks on white paper' 
alive for us today.”  
—Notre Dame of Maryland University, Baltimore

“I know of no national or international touring company that is better 
than the ASC at re-creating the dynamically interactive original staging practices that Shakespeare’s own audiences experienced.”   
—Dr. William R. Jones, Assistant Professor of Shakespeare Studies, Murray State University, Murray, Kentucky 

“… there is no better way of doing Shakespeare.” 
Manhattan College, Riverdale, New York

“Great performance, friendly cast and crew.  Easy load in and out.”

"I never realized how amazing Shakespeare's plays would be live.  
It was better than a movie in every single way."  
—Student in Kilmarnock, Virginia

“This was a wonderful experience all around.  Working
with everyone from office to on-site was smooth, and everyone was fun and easy
to work with.  We drew an audience that exceeded expectations and was very
enthusiastic at the close of the show.”
 FestivALL, Charleston, West Virginia

“…brilliantly acted, cleverly set and staged, very engaging.” 
—Muskingum University, New Concord, Ohio 

“We had a blast with the ASC touring cast…the morning workshops were absolutely wonderful, and the performance was extremely well-received by our students.  In fact, one notoriously cynical junior was overheard telling teachers that we should ‘read more Shakespeare’ in English classes.  SUCCESS!”  
—Annapolis Area Christian School, Severn, Maryland

“We were absolutely blown away by the amazing performances 
and master classes …” 
UVa College at Wise, Virginia

“I can't begin to tell you what a lasting gift the performers gave to our students (and staff).  It was an experience that will last forever in our minds and our hearts.  Being an isolated rural district limits the fine arts experiences offered 
to our students."
—Clarksville Independent School District, Clarksville, Texas

“Fantastic from start to finish…” 
Ursinus College, Collegeville, Pennsylvania
