Parent Testimonies

As a complete newcomer to the theatre scene, I’ve watched with awe as the huge organisational feat of putting on a production became clear. From the logistical nightmare of arranging rehearsals and timeslots, costumes, music, venue changes, not to mention lots of enthusiastic performers, it was managed brilliantly and always with smiling faces. The culmination of all that hard work was simply mesmeric. I had to pinch myself repeatedly, as it was hard to fathom the quality of talent that was on display.  I feel very proud to have been a part of this, even if it was just as a parent taxi driver. Thank you so much for having my daughter as part of your cast. She’s had a taste of a whole new world and she loved every minute, by the end she even enjoyed the dancing! I wonder what the future holds for everyone? I for one feel a little bereft now it’s all over…
Wow, just Wow! What an amazing job the cast and crew have done. The talent on stage was incredible and certainly had the audience eating out of their hands. There was a very eerie silence watching the show, you captured everyone even my 7-year-old nephew (not sure he understood the story but he was mesmerised)  I was so proud to watch my daughter, I knew she could sing but you’ve helped her take it to the next level- just beautiful.
My Daughter has had a wonderful time with the company. We have watched her confidence grow week in week. We couldn’t be prouder of her and everyone involved. The darlings I was chaperone for were an absolute pleasure. So well done and thank you to all.
