“I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous job you did with the camps in Wizard of Oz. My son truly loved the experience!! Nobody that knew he could act. He was very shy, but he surprised us all!” - Michelle Ryder

“Hope this finds you well!!! I was so impressed with what I saw. Young campers, already bringing their own truths to the stage… I saw acting choices made – things most kids don’t even think about at this age, but rather in college or a conservatory….”

- Kevin Walker
