"Block gives a gripping performance as the complex, self-satisfied young adult who has come unaware to a turning point in his life."

Sacramento Bee Year in Review
I absolutely love Master Harold. It's a beautiful play about a boy who is trying to find his way in a changing world, which is something I really connected to. I also really loved working with a small cast, and my cast mates-Michael J. Asberry and Rob Anthony Gray- were absolutely wonderful to work with. They both really took me under their wing and made me feel like part of the team.
Highlights of the production were...young Will Block as an ebullient Robin Goodfellow/Puck/Philostrate. --Sacramento Press 2010
The first show I had ever seen had been at Sac Shakes. I had always wanted to work there, and was absolutely ecstatic when I got to play Puck. I love working in the park-and this play especially was just magical when it was outside. Perhaps it just fit in with the whole 'getting back to nature' theme that runs throughout the play. We certainly were roughing it a couple of times. On opening night, a birthday party across the street was playing rather loud rock music throughout the show. As exasperating as it sounds, it kind of made us feel at ease. We all thought..."What the hell, we can only do so well with the rock music blaring to the umpteenth degree. Pressure's off!"
Petruchio's young sidekick Grumio was stalwart throughout!
I loved working in the park again, and being re-paired with Rick Eldredge, who played Oberon in Midsummer the year before. He's gotten quite good at abusing me over the years...
