I have had the priviage to work with this organization for the last 6 years. The service they provide to the community is invaluable. The theatre and school are a place where kids and adults can come and feel apart of something important. People can come to explore and grow as individuals. I truly appreciate the safe haven they provide for children in the community.

Great plays, terrific actors and an awesome theatre experience. I've been a season ticket holder for several years and Lamb never fails to disappoint. Sioux City is very lucky to have such a wonderful theatre to call home.

As an individual that attends numerous plays during the year, Lamb Arts Regional Theatre continues to impress me with the quality of the students that it educates on a continuing basis. It is a great pleasure to see the growth in these students as they progress in theatre.

As an educator, I am so impressed and grateful to the teachers at Lamb Theatre. I have watched my children grow in confidence, skills, and have seen the love of the art of drama flourish within them. Only great teaching can make that kind of a difference. It is a wonderful, safe place for children to learn how to express themselves through acting, music, and dance.

I never cease to be impressed by the caliber of students coming out of the LAMB school. Their intelligence, professionalism, respect for the craft and dramatic traditions is remarkable. The passion and dedication demanded of the staff to achieve these ends is nothing short of miraculous. I have a hard time imagining a Sioux City without LAMB.

Lamb Arts has been providing an outstanding place for youth to learn more about all aspects of theatre and bulding their own self confidence for years. Our son participated in their summer camps about 20 years ago...now he takes his baby to the kindermusik.

I LOVE attending theatre, and am never disappointed in the quality of the shows and talent it it's a Lamb show!

I love attending theatre productions, and appreciate the professional performances (especially when I can "forget" that I know the person on stage, because they "become" the role!) I especially love watching the young people as they grow and mature with their roles. I won't miss a play at Lamb!!Shay G

I have been volunteering at Lamb for over 7 years!! The entertainment is spectacular!!! I bought a season ticket the 1st year and have not missed 1 show in all these years. I have seen the students mature through their classes, vocal lessons and just life lessons!! I am a House Manager on many shows so I hear the publics comments on all the shows they see...which are very positive. I also volunteer with the costuming and have gotten to know and love the all the actors!! Lamb is a great place to be involved, meet new people and totally enjoy a night at the theatre! I plan to volunteer as long as I am capable!!!

In 2006, my son started taking voice lessons at Lamb Theatre....That is when my association started. I volunteered alot of time there...I helped with costumes, I ushered at the shows and I worked the concession stand...my son stopped doing shows when his college life took him too far away to do a show, but I continue to give them my time. I house manage alot of shows now and have become a Season ticket holder. I have seen the growth in so many actors, young and old, and KNOW the staff at Lamb Theatre has had everything to do with it. They are very caring, honest, hard working and ALWAYS there for someone in need. As long as I can, and as long as they need me, I will be there for them in any capacity that is needed.

Our middle school daughter joined the Lamb Musical Theater class and also took their 3-week summer camp this year. She gained more self confidence from Lamb than we could have ever hoped for. It is as if she feels like a whole different person. It was quite a transformation for us to watch. We are very happy with all that Lamb has to offer. Extremely professionally run and the teachers are caring, competent professionals that love teaching kids. The productions are very well done and the set design far surpasses what even most adult community theaters would do. The staff is highly organized and good at communicating with parents.

I never review things but decided that Lamb is worth spend time letting people know about.

The difference that Lamb THEATRE has made in our lives is profound. Our teenage daughter was looking for an outlet for her acting and singing that was not to be found anywhere else in Sioux City...Lamb filled that so perfectly it is hard to find words to express our gratitude. Our daughter had the raw talent but Lamb gave her focus and incentive to be so much better. The owners and staff are above talented themselves, are encouraging and know what they are doing to help children through adults lead a creative life. They GET these children and adults who need to create through music and acting and then provide a wonderful environment for them to share their gifts with Sioux City and the surrounding area. Our daughter has been given an amazing gift to be able to perform at Lamb and we cannot recommend it highly enough! This school has given her the education that could normally only be found in major cities. And we have it RIGHT HERE!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The only thing I can imagine being better would be having more space? But what they do with the space they have is BEYOND spectacular!

We have been enjoying the classes and productions at LAMB for several years and they never cease to amaze us with their devotion to each and every play and each and every person who walks through their doors whether they are their actors or their audience. They strive to share this experience of live theatre and the magic that is produced onstage with everyone. The Sioux City area is beyond blessed to have LAMB Theatre available to them!
