Looking back … and looking forward!

Looking back … and looking forward!

What Los Angeles Drama Club has achieved in 2019 boggles the imagination!

So much so that we have changed our name to Shakespeare Youth Festival so that we can better reflect our wider inclusion and expansion as a global youth arts movement.

This year alone, Shakespeare Youth Festival has reached over 1,000 children and youth locally and around the globe.

Because of your support and that of many others, Hamlet has been spoken in English, Spanish, Setswana, and Luo! Prospero has worked his magic in Watts, Botswana, Kenya and in Guanajuato, Mexico! And our own Shakespeare Youth Festival LA – now in its 15th year (and featured in the LA Times) – continues to change lives.

More importantly, Shakespeare Youth Festival has provided and continues to provide the support for young people to develop self-empowerment, grow their strengths and participate in creating an ever-expanding community of inclusiveness, acceptance and love. We invite you to read testimonials from young people who have grown up with us.

But … Shakespeare Youth Festival cannot thrive without your financial support.

Please put us on the top of your end-of-year giving list, so that we can continue to make a profound and lasting impact on our children in our immediate community and around the globe.

Thank you,

Blaire Baron
