“Why every show doesn’t do this, I’ll never know.”

“Thank you for your performance of Behind the Emerald Curtain at Stagecrafters Youth Theater! What a great experience for our members and patrons. We could not have asked for more! Everyone is still facebooking (if that's a verb) about the evening.”

“So many of our youth theater members are interested in continuing their pursuit of the performing arts, and it's extremely helpful when they can interact directly with people who make this not only their craft, but their means to make a living. As you stated, the skill sets developed in the arts are so valuable, no matter where they are ultimately applied in life.”
Tony Battle
Stagecrafters Youth Theater

“Our 92 musical theater students, ages 8-18, loved this program! In addition to having a wonderful time they received valuable information about every aspect of theater. Thank you for creating ‘Behind the Emerald Curtain.’ It’s absolutely incredible, and will be a permanent fixture in our curriculum.” “The most educational tour in New York, and not just for theatre students....every element learned during ‘Behind the Emerald Curtain’ plays out in the classroom and on stage by theatre students and technicians....you can’t beat the exceptional educational aspects of this, the only tour of its kind!”
