The Rhodes Junior Apprentice Program is truly wonderful. Through both improvisation and rehearsal for the culminating Shakespeare play, Junior Apprentices both individually and as a group are able to grow both in specific aspects of performance and in enjoyment of theater as a whole. Participating in Juniors has allowed me to increase my appreciation for Shakespeare, become more confident when performing, and experience firsthand the great camaraderie upon which the theater community is built.
