As a musical theatre teacher and vocal coach, I was very pleased with the organization, convenience, accommodations and production we enjoyed 12/15/15. I've lived in the area 30 years and didn't realize this gem was here! I will definitely be returning...in May in fact!

I've taken my kids to three or four Arts on Stage LTD shows (ask my 7 year old which ones and when - he remembers every one in detail!) and we have had a wonderful experience. The shows are varied so we can always find ones that appeal to us and are on our level. The performances are superb! The events are always well managed - easy in, easy out. We love them! And will keep going year after year!

Arts on Stage presents many known and unknown children's stories in play format for younger audiences. It introduces kids to multicultural dances and famous historical figures in entertaining and easily accessible ways that allow children to gain a wealth of knowledge that they might otherwise find to difficult to understand or too boring to pay attention to. It is great for homeschooled children as well as traditionally educated students alike. My kids really like see the performances and so do we. We attend one to two shows a month during the school year. I wish they would expand and start offering shows in the summer!

I am a homeschooling mother who jumped at the chance to open up my child's world to the arts and we couldn't be more pleased. The presentation was wonderful and my son didn't stop smiling. He loved getting to interact with the cast as they drew the audience into helping the characters! This was our first time attending and I know it won't be our last.... we've already made more reservations for this school year and can't wait to share with more of our friends!

I brought a group of 3rd graders to see one their shows and was very pleased with the performance. The show was very informative and engaging. The kids loved every minute of it and learned alot as well. I also appreciated that they included my deaf and hard of hearing students by providing an interpreter and bringing one of them up on stage as a participant.

I am the Director of a preschool and Daycare in Harford County. Our four-year-olds have been attending Arts on Stage programs for many many years. The staff children and parents look forward to this event all year long. All of the shows that we have seen are great. The staff at Arts on Stage does a wonderful job of organizing such a huge show. We look forward to our visit in March of 2013!

I have been taking my three year old class to your shows for many years and have found it a wonderful way to introduce live theater to them.We just saw The Wizard of Oz and found it to be one of your very best. Working with Leslie is always a pleasure and she runs a very excellant business. Thank you for all you do for the children to enrich them!

Arts on Stage LTD offers a large variety of shows for all ages and topics. The ticket prices have remained very economical through the years. Our teachers are always pleased with the content of the shows and the professionalism of the performances. We have tried other theater groups through the years but none of them can compare with the overall quality of Arts on Stage. Our parents also enjoy the shows they attend and bring very positive feedback.

I am a teacher at a Baltimore city school. We are always short on funds, and so are our parents. But Arts On Stage has gone the extra mile to extend financial deadlines to accomodate us. We have never missed a show due to funding problems. Arts on Stage gives my students experiences that they otherwise would not have as a part of their background experience.

My fifth grade class usually attends an Arts on Stage show a year as a field trip. This fall's Dear America program did a wonderful job tying into the Social Studies curriculum and was both well crafted and performed. The staff is also very friendly and accommodating. We'll be back again!

I'm a homeschool mom who has taken my two daughters to several shows throughout the year. We've appreciated the diversity of programs offered. Maybe frequent attenders such as ourselves should be offered discounted tickets!?!

I am a homeschool mother of 2 children and we have enjoyed so many Arts on Stage productions over the past 5 years. I appreciate the variety of performances offered. My children have enjoyed seeing some of their favorite books come to life on stage, Aesop's fables with puppets, dances and music from other cultures, and Christmas favorites. Arts on Stage has enriched our homeschooling experience.

Arts on Stage provides wonderful educational shows! Our homeschool group attended "A Christmas Carol" in December of 2009 and is excited to be returning in February of 2011 to see "Apollo to the Moon." The families in our group really enjoy the shows and can't wait to come back for another one! The staff is always very helpful and quick to respond to all of our questions. I highly recommend them!
