"Theatre is an experience like non other! You develop skills that not only help you succeed as a performer, but will also carry through to your every day life. It builds confidence, creativity and character. It brings me so much joy to witness kids transform into the best versions of themselves by being a part of theatre! It's been my pleasure to be a part of what Lifesong and LifeStage has been doing since Day One. First as a student and now as a teacher and leader."
