Review for Handful Players, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have attended several performances of the Handful Players. I can unequivocally state that this is a great project. It is a perfect example of the use of the arts/theater to teach self confidence, develop hidden talents, teach youngsters to get along with one another, function as a team, to work with adult supervision without confrontation, and to have a good time safely. I look forward to their next performance
