Suzanne Rubinstein, Volunteer Director and Co-Founder of YSP East
Suzanne has worked in development and marketing in the nonprofit sector for over two decades. She is the mother of three YSP actors, and has volunteered at YSP in Madison, WI for five years. Now in New England, she is thrilled to share the joys of YSP and classical theater with local young people, their families and the greater community.
Annabelle Fitch, Assistant Director
Annabelle Fitch, age 16, has been acting with the Young Shakespeare Players East for nine productions, and has directed for five. After holding positions such as that of an apprentice director, assistant costumer, and stage manager, she is excited to be an assistant director for King Henry IV Part One. When not directing or acting, Annabelle is passionate about creative writing and psychology. Something she appreciates about Shakespeare’s works is their psychological realism, which is one reason why she continues participating in YSP East. As for others, she adores the supportive, mature, and intellectual community. A program fostering curiosity and compassion, YSP has become her second home.

Leo Sanzone, age 16, has been acting with the Young Shakespeare Players East for eight productions, and has directed for five. He lives in Vermont and enjoys science, acting and being silly with friends. He is excited to be an assistant director for King Henry IV Part One and also perform as Falstaff.
