Review for Handful Players, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our high school has had several students involved in productions, and I have seen first-hand the confidence and joy this rich experience brings to these young people. The production I attended was located in the Fillmore and centered around the history and music of the Fillmore neighborhood. Children of various ages in the musical learned while performing and having fun, and their talent was encouraged and highlighted through this experience. It was a fantastic night to see these young performers come into their own - thanks to the dedication of Handful Players.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the young actors and artists having a safe place to express themselves, and perhaps "launch" new careers! It is fantastic for their self-confidence, and gives these students an after-school-hours activity to look forward to.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

absolutely dedicated - living and breathing - their work is all about the kids

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

give so many more kids opportunities in the performing arts, if not just the chance for exposure to what being on the stage is all about. Kids need someone to believe in them and Handful Players does absolutely that!
