Artist Statement:

As a theatre professional, I am fully aware of the life-changing positive influences this art form can have on students of all ages. I have been a witness, a participant and a facilitator of this countless times. I believe specifically in the power of Shakespeare to unleash students’ creativity and thereby open up a world of possibilities for them. To truly come alive, Shakespeare must be spoken – must be experienced. The deep understand and empowerment students  gain as they learn how to decipher his texts, act his words and explore his characters not only enhances their intellectual and creative growth but also encourages their growth as empathetic human beings. Respect and trust are integral to the successful experience as they learn to value and depend on each other – not just on themselves. Thus the joy of working in the theatre enhances their lives for years to come.
