The new Tennessee Shakespeare Company is the best community and regional gift we have received in recent times.  The performance value was truly outstanding and the use of a natural setting in the production added another dimension to the theater experience. I cannot wait to see what the company plans to present next year!  I gave bonus points to any of my 8th grade students who bought tickets and attended As You Like It because Shakespeare must be seen and heard in a live performance to be appreciated fully.  The cast members and musicians were of the highest caliber.  Thank you Dan McCleary, Frank Bluestein, the Founding Board of Directors, St. George's Church and the Apperson Family for working together to produce such a cultural bonanza for all of us!
