BLITHE SPIRIT: Lucky Penny Productions

"Willful specter Elvira (Sydney Schwindt), in superb makeup by Brette Bartolucci, integrates menace with coquettish pouting that is captivating from the moment she appears in billowing mist."

- Alexa Chipman (Napa Valley Register) CLICK HERE

"The production features Bay Area favorite Tim Kniffin as Charles Condomine and Sydney Schwindt as Elvira (who were both outstanding, she as a most fetching ghost)."

- Paul Franson (Napa Life) CLICK HERE

"Schwindt is a lot of fun as the devilish Elvira"

THE MISS FIRECRACKER CONTEST: Lucky Penny Productions

"Not a weak actor in the group, but I must say that Sydney Schwindt (Popeye Jackson) stole the show with her spot-on rendition of a "Good-ole Down South" country girl."

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM: Davis Shakespeare Festival

-Scott Ragsdale (Davis Enterprise) Full Review CLICK HERE

"...Helena (Sydney Schwindt, whose training as a clown was good preparation for this role)..."

HAMLET: San Francisco Shakespeare Festival

"When the fiery Laertes (played by the lithe performer Sydney Schwindt) bounds out of Ophelia’s freshly dug grave to wrestle Andalis’ much more sturdily built Hamlet, it’s a thrill to see a presumed mismatch in fact play out as tit for tat — or rumble for tumble."

-Lily Janiak (SF Gate) Full Review CLICK HERE

JIHAD JONES & THE KALASHNIKOV BABES: Arabian Shakespeare Festival

"Jihad Jones is a well-crafted, superbly acted high comedy with a moral dilemma that transcends the current issues of Arab and Muslim stereotypes."

FIGHT CHOREOGRAPHY

Livermore Shakespeare Festival "Othello"

"There’s some spirited swordplay scattered through the show, in fights directed by Sydney Schwindt (one of the three performers in “Complete Works”). The play’s most vital death scene is chilling in part because of how mercilessly long it takes."

- Sam Hurwitt, Mercury News CLICK HERE

Davis Shakespeare Ensemble "Ken Ludwig's Three Musketeers"

"Sydney Schwindt’s nimble fight choreography is a major factor in this show’s success."

- Jeff Hudson, Davis Enterprise CLICK HERE

"The frequent swordplay (something like 20 fights, deftly choreographed by Sydney Schwindt) is basically bloodless, with many miraculous escapes."

-Jeff Hudson, Sacramento News and Review CLICK HERE
