    Subject:  review of The Shakespeare Playground
    Comment:  I'd like to send a review of The Shakespeare Playground. It is at The Brooklyn Conservatory of Music.My son attended it last summer and he will be going back again this year. He is eight.He loved the whole experience! He came home everyday with some new excitement about learning Shakespeare and discovering acting , whether it via stage combat, improvs, games or something he did new that he created for his character! We were a little nervous at first about him being the youngest at 7, but it worked out beautifully and he had a blast and a wonderful experience, learned a lot and made new friends, while being part of a team. What more could you ask for!!Renee, the director, really knows her Shakespeare and most importantly how to make it fun for the kids and how to get them excited about acting and Shakespeare and theater. My understanding is that she has been doing it in public schools for many years- and it definitely shows! The vibe of the program is warm, secure, safe, but yet also allows risks and experiments without judgement. It was a very inspiring time for my son!I am sending him back again this summer and he can't wait!
