Imagination Theater brings an element of simplicity to otherwise very complicated issues our school children are facing in their young lives. Their approach to teaching the students with a sense of humor really keeps them engaged and helps them understand at their developmental level. I am a school social worker who works with a very diverse population, and I feel that all of the students I work with can understand and connect with the actors in some way. The presentations are very engaging and fun! We can't wait to have them back to our school!

Imagination Theater individualized scripts for our young men and women and approached the themes in their lives in a way that was transformative. We will invite them back every year!

Thanks to the actors who came to MacNeal School yesterday and did an incredible performance with the students. They engaged everyone and their material was updated and edgy enough to be really meaningful. Excellent job and we will have you back!

I absolutely love Imagination Theater! I am a School Counselor and have hosted the program for four consecutive years and I intend to continue to bring it to my school. Students greatly benefit from the performance and the followup discussions.

Imagination Theater has served our K - 8 student population in the past with great success. It is a unique tool to raise awareness about a very serious and sensitive topic. We are excited to bring Imagination Theater to our school again next month. We certainly could not do it without the grant due to the fact that over 80% of our students are at or below poverty level. Thanks, Imagination Theater!

Amazing program for our students! Although this program is intended for student, The No Secret Show through Imagination theater also provides information pamphlets for parents on how to keep children safe.

Imagination Theater brings complicated issues and presents them in a manner in which students understand the teaching point of the presentation. The interactions between Imagination Theater and the audience makes it an engaging presentation, child oriented , and age-appropriate. All the actors and narrators carried themselves professionally and we would highly recommend Imagination Theater to support a school's SEL program.
