“Loved working as a team. Clumps were described as 'delicious' by the adjudicator. Our group rose to the challenge and won best youth play at National Play Festival.”
Linda voice voice, king john youth theatre company
“The characters are so relatable and the message so powerful that students, parents, and faculty alike enjoyed the show. The students were excited to act as characters that they could relate to, and the principal enjoyed the message for students. As a first time director, it was so well written that directing it was a fantastic experience.”
Sabrina Bryant, Lilburn Middle School
“The characters in this show were easy for my Middle School students to relate to. The flow from one scene to another worked very well with minimal set on stage. ”
Michele McCarty, Carrollwood Day School
“Hoodie was a wonderful success with a full house each night. The community here was so impressed with the message that the sixth grade teaching team asked for us to perform it for the entire grade level. The students involved had a great time and it stretched many of them in the skills as performers.”
Adam Henjum, International Christian School
“This shirt has to show everything there is to know about me, my absolute coolness, and demonstrate my abilities to reach the highest rung on the in-crowd ladder.”
