"My daughter...had a wonderful time working with your actors on Comedy of Errors. It was fun and educational, providing her with professional instruction. I would recommend this program to any child who is serious about the art of drama. Programs like yours are becoming increasingly important seeing as arts programs are slowly diminishing from public schools. Thank you again for a wonderful experience!!!!"

King Lear, 2014 Shakesperience is a professional theater company located in Connecticut that reaches a Northeast audience of adults and students alike with outdoor and in-studio performances, Saturday and private acting classes, school & camp tours, and residencies.

The Reluctant Dragon Shakesperience was founded in 1996 by Emily Mattina and Jeffrey Lapham, with a mission to educate and inspire students, families, and theater professionals through the arts. The non-profit organization is headquartered on Bank Street in the heart of downtown Waterbury, Connecticut.

The Comedy of Errors, 2015 The Shakesperience studio serves as rehearsal space, classroom space, and performance space. Shakesperience is a fiscally responsible company whose management believes that the economic and cultural climate, and indeed the future of theatre, call for well-thought-out use of multi-purpose spaces. Therefore, every inch of our facility is put to excellent use and creative capacity.

Much Ado About Nothing, 2013Because of our downtown location, Shakesperience is poised to collaborate with many other for-profit and non-profit organizations; its headquarters also serve as a meeting place and community outreach base. Many of the staff and resident artists serve in a volunteer capacity for art, culture, education, and service organizations.  This is but one outcropping of the Shakesperience Approach to creation through collaboration.
