From a teacher:

”Thank you all! That was fun for all — teachers included. The children stayed really engaged even though they were in their own homes and not in the classroom together. We’d love to do another show in the future. This is such an inventive way to do theatre!”

From a parent of a birthday girl:

“Thank you so much for making Phoebe’s birthday special while we all stayed safe! What a wonderful party!”

From a parent whose child attended a weekend show:

“My girls LOVED the show. My 6-year-old daughter Amelie said, "That was the best ever!" and then she retold us the entire story from beginning to end. They loved every minute of it, and it was just a brilliant way to play and act through Zoom. Well done! We are excited to participate in your next show for younger audiences.”
