“Blackfriars is a gem in the middle of Long Island. It is a program that is introducing young people to the magic of the works of William Shakespeare and honing skills in young actors that theatre professions are searching frantically for. I can honestly say that Blackfriars is the first place I look to when recruiting young actors for our Training Program and MainStage Productions.”
