What our clients think…

When we asked the director of the RSC what he looked for in an actor, he replied "curiosity, craftsmanship and communication". Individuals have different feelings which are like seeds in our heart waiting to take root and sprout in a suitable environment. For us parents, we must select ideal opportunities to sow the seeds in our children’s heart. This is one such opportunity.

My daughter and I had such an enjoyable week learning about the theatre and Shakespeare's plays. The workshops and activities really brought everything alive for us. Our teachers were fantastic too!
