“Above and beyond my wildest expectations! I do not have a theatre degree, and I feel all of

the workshops have gone towards filling places where I have gaps in my knowledge.”

“I am going home with so many ideas, lessons, and resources for my classroom and personal library.”

“A toolkit of resources, professional advice and Broadway quality entertainment! We’ll definitely be back!”
