    FEEDBACK FROM OUR WORKSHOPS

    "Sean Eastman [artistic director] relates amazingly to young people."

    "The kids absolutely loved it, and after you left, insisted we continue to play some of the games that had been started during your visit."

    "I was very impressed with Sean Eastman's workshop, and all the students I saw later in the day kept saying how much fun it was. I was amazed at how a few well-chosen exercises addressed the problems I usually see when kids start working on their scenes."

    "I learned how important teamwork is on stage."

    "He helped put physical being into our characters."
