Praise for our Workshops

From the Parent/Guardians:

You were all wonderful and so encouraging to the students. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

My child grew because of the constructive feedback that was provided by the instructors.”

“… wanted to thank you all SO MUCH for this incredible opportunity and for opening the doors of musical theater for (our daughter). She absolutely LOVES theater, stories, performing, musicals, and music so the integration of all these into one passion outlet is dream come true for her.  You’ve been amazing and a wonderful source of joy for her during a most challenging season of life. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

What a wonderful program you created for our kids to learn and practice their craft. (Our daughter) would light up every Wednesday knowing she got to spend time with her MWT peeps. In times like this, it means even more to give our children positive experiences that bring them joy.”

From the Participants:

I really grew so much as a performer! It was really helpful.”

I loved this workshop so much. It definitely changed all of skills for the better.

Since I am really wanting to continue with the MWT, these workshops were extremely helpful to me because I could get familiar with some of the theater’s/director’s expectations and styles.”
