For adults....theatre and gala provide the type of entertainment that is a win win. Enjoyable and with a meaningful cause! Congratulations! Lynn Bassini
My kids and I love Theatreworks USA. I had the opportunity to see two productions with my children and their classmates. All the children enjoyed the shows. They laughed and smiled a lot. We saw "Junie B Jones" and "Seussical". The costumes were perfect and the characters were portrayed well.
I was fortunate to be cast in Theatreworks' production of "Susan B!" about the life of Susan B. Anthony, back in early 1980's. I was a young actress in my early twenties, and this was my first job with a weekly paycheck. Jay Harnick and Charles Hull were extremely supportive of their employees, as we ventured out across the country and even to Alaska with our show. It was an experience I will never forget, because so many children in so many places, made it clear by their response, that they were having a great time being "edutained" by our traveling troupe. I am thrilled that Theatreworks is still going strong. It was formative to my career, and an inspiration to many who would not otherwise have a theatre experience.
From seeing their shows at 5 years old to working as an intern in the office as a college student, I have thoroughly enjoyed my association with Theatreworks/USA and continue to keep in touch with the people I met there. Theatreworks consistently provides the highest quality theatre for children who might otherwise not be exposed to it.
I was a staff member almost two decades ago and now regularly bring my children to see the work of Theatreworks/USA.
Theatreworks USA productions are high quality and enjoyable by all ages. My children have enjoyed the varied programs for several years. It is a magical experience every time we go. The performers are well trained and make the characters believable.
I was able to attend the Free Summer Theatre performance of "Click Clack Moo" in New York last year, and I have to say, TheatreworksUSA makes fantastic productions that can be enjoyed by children and adults as well. Everyone left the theatre smiling, engaged, and promising to come back again. The music is catchy, the costumes are perfection, and all of the stories are educational and entertaining as well. Great job, TheatreworksUSA!
For many years, I worked as an actor with Theaterworks. Now, I take my children to their shows. As an actor, I was very, very proud of introducing theater to children all across the US, many of whom had never been to a show before they saw ours. As a mom, I'm impressed by how consistently Theaterworks is able to put together works of theater that are at the same time moving, entertaining and educational. They are, quite simply, the best!
I attended the Opening Night Benefit of "Click, Clack, Moo" this past summer and had such a blast! Not only was the book adapted so well for the stage, the acting, singing, costumes, and set design was top notch. The staff at TheatreWorks also planned a fantastic after party where I had an opportunity to meet the actors, author, and illustrator. I am a teacher and I love the idea of introducing my students to the world of theatre through stories they're familiar with performed at such a highly professional caliber. TheatreWorks provides opportunities for kids who may never get to see a show on Broadway. I look forward to planning field trips for my students!
Bringing my class to a Theatreworks USA production is always a great experience from start to finish! At last year's Junie B. Jones performance students and parent chaperones alike enjoyed the funny, lively, and clever show presented by an incredibly talented cast. As a teacher I appreciated that the staff was friendly and helpful from booking the tickets to accommodating our seating needs. My students and I will definitely be back!
