“I feel that the classes I have taken at the Hartford Stage have helped me with my public speaking skills. I have also enjoyed learning from other students’ perspective on the shared topics and objectives. The instructors were extremely knowledgeable  and interesting!”
–Mark White (Introduction to Acting, Introduction to Improv)


“I love theatre. I was raised going to shows, but I never took the family path. I became a nurse. Now as I am a new nurse manager. I understood even more the importance of feeling comfortable and confident in front of large groups. Hartford Stage is giving me that confidence, and so much more. They have brought me back to a childhood connection that I loved and didn’t even realize how much I missed!!”
–Tory Murtha (Introduction to Acting)
