What the Expert Says:

The size of the school should not be a factor in shyness. Overcoming shyness may include gaining confidence in new situations, learning how to make friends, being comfortable with talking with adults. I recommend participating in a drama, beginning backstage and then trying a small on-stage part. Later as the child gains confidence, he or she may be more likely to try new experiences.

I think its best to work the child up the ladder. Start out with a small setting. Smaller settings allows them to not be overwhelmed by so many people to up to and then as they become more comfortable and confident, they can increase to being around more and more peers.

I myself suffer from severe shyness at the age of 22 and I find if I have smaller groups it takes me a shorter amount of time to open up to those around me.
