“I loved my time at Junior Shakespeare (JS) and learned a lot. Not just about acting, drama and Shakespeare but also about social skills and interactions. I played Romeo in Romeo & Juliet.
I was approached to try out JS and I decided it would be good for school as we were studying Romeo & Juliet at the time. I learned a lot about Shakespeare and English in general by reading, learning and reciting the lines. The Directors also were a huge help and very nice.
Before I went to JS I did drama with ITW. I was not very confident in class and in general a bit awkward. Getting a role in JS was quite freeing and improved my social & conversational skills and drama skills.
Overall it improved large aspects of my skills that will help; not just in Drama and English but also in day to day life.”
