Review for Longview Act, Longview, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter began "acting" at age 8 in an academy. Even though she only had about 3 lines, her first question to me after it was over, "when can I do another play?". Yes, my daughter still acts (flash forward 5 years). She tries out for every production that she can fit in. She has been in show choirs and even added apprentice work. I am simply amazed at how much she has grown as a person in self-confidence, maturity, and in her speaking skills. i credit ArtsView in helping her on that journey. She has experienced disappointment in not making a play, she has had great joy at all the roles she has played, and she has been successful at UIL activities. She continues to grow and learn at every ArtsView experience. The last play she does is always her favorite and she never wants that play to end.

No matter what part you have in a play (ensemble or lead), the kids and staff treat you like you are important. To us, ArtsView is not just a place, it is our Acting Family. i call it family because my child is accepted for she is. Older kids accept younger kids and "show them the ropes". If it is your first time in a play or a production, don't worry. the cast just welcomes you in. You are "one of us".

What started off has something for my child to do in the summer has turned into something that she loves. As a parent, I watch her face light up when it's ArtsView time.

Longview truly has a wonderful asset for the young people in this community. It is a huge blessing to my family.

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

ask for continued support from the community. It is a wonderful organization with a very caring and committed staff.
