The sense of community that is created, the friendships that develop and the support they offer each other is really a beautiful thing. Plus, the talent! In both age groups, the level of accomplishment and the desire to learn is remarkable. We have a really
strong group of kids who are making these shows and this experience something very special. Come see the magic they create”
