I homeschool my youngest child and I would have pulled my older children out of school to attend this performance had I known how EXCELLENT the production [The Hundred Dresses] was -- from a thematic as well as theatrical point of view. PROFOUND!
I chaperoned my daughter's first grade class to your performnace of Charlotte's Web yeseterday morning. It was a wonderful production for the children and I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. During some discussions after we retruned to school Kylie was asked what her favorite part was and she replied, "When Wilbur shook his booty!" It was just great, great, great as the goose and gander might say!
The staff was very helpful and worked with me about the due date for the money. Thank you.

Our kindergarten class attended a production at Goucher [NOT presented by Arts On Stage]. The teachers were very disappointed and kept comparing that production to your productions. I wanted to tell you what they said so that you can be complimented on what your company is doing and why it is successful.
[This Company] did not have anyone seating or dismissing the schools. The groups were loosely directed to their seats when they arrived, just basically where there was room. There was no general or specific seating plan which caused seating to be a bit chaotic. Even worse than that, there was no dismissal plan. After the production, the whole room was dismissed which was extremely chaotic. Our teachers were nervous about losing students. The teachers kept pointing out how with Arts On Stage, everything is controlled, directed and organized.
Our teacher's biggest complaint was the content of the show. The main character, a young girl, was mouthy and disrespectful at times to her grandfather, without correction. There was some other questionable behavior in the play as well. This was a big concern for teachers. The teachers said your productions are always excellent, age-appropriate and most importantly, content appropriate...Way to go Arts On Stage!
