Reviews from Theatre Critics & Mommy Bloggers

How long can a child 3 and under be engaged in theater?  Actually, when the show is created for them, they'll sit the whole time. And they'll even ask for more.
Kiran Dodeja Smith, Little Ones Magazine Blog

Most people are aware that participating in the arts can help kids develop their own creativity and discover new possibilities in the world around them. But they may not realize that the arts also provide a unique opportunity for human connection. This happens between the performers and the audience, as well as between the child and adult who attend a performance together. This shared experience creates a very special bond that endures.
Liz Bertrand, Modern Mom Magazine

I was impressed by the gentle insistence of the performers to get each and every child involved. The actors never frightened the children nor pushed them into anything. My daughter, who can be shy, seemed very comfortable exploring the space at the end of the production. 
Tim Baxter-Ferguson, Arts a la Mode

The collective wonder of the children and their parents was a sight to behold.
