Working with Ron Destro and Malcolm McKay in Macbeth, was one of the most enriching experiences of my acting career. In rehearsals and on-site, these consummate professionals "raised the bar" for each participant and provided a unique opportunity to grow both as actors and as human beings. Our performance in Birnam Wood was eerie and wondrous, just as Shakespeare intended. Can't wait to go back this summer! - N.W.

​

“The Birnam Wood Macbeth was the experience of a lifetime, and I’ll always be thankful to you for providing such a cool opportunity…. I honestly believe your Onsite Shakespeare workshops are important for the theatre and the endurance of Shakespeare’s plays in the next generation of actors. “ - P.E.

​

“This week with the Oxford Shakespeare Company has been the best week of my life."  -  E. F.

​

“It was truly a once in a lifetime experience I will always cherish.”  - A. K.

​

“One of the most amazing adventures I have ever been on! It was lovely to perform with such a diverse and amazing bunch of actors!"   - M. N.
