“Our 6 yr old daughter has loved this program, having attended mini-musical and Shakespeare in the summer and two semesters of musical theater during the year. The teachers, gifted professionals and gifted with children, are exceptional: they know how to motivate the cast, get them working and playing together, and bring out everyone's talent, no matter what age or ability. It's really something to see. Lucy sings and practices lines on the subway in the mornings, and comes home crooning "N - Y - C" ("Annie").”
Rebecca Walkowitz
“The Mini Musical camps are awesome. My five year old daughter loves them. This was her second summer attending one of the camps. This is a friendly and supportive creative arts camp for young kids. It gives them a chance to explore the visual arts, dance, theater, and music. Their programs offer an engaging opportunity for young artists at all levels to perform and create. The staff are relaxed, fun, and genuine.”
Claire McCue
“Child's Play was great for our son. He was a very apprehensive to be left alone at first, but the staff figured him out and paid very close attention to his particular needs. They were also very accommodating to his various food allergies. Overall really great experience. Our son still sings songs he learned at Child's Play and had such a good time there.”
Clark Shaw
“Our daughter still sings and does the routines from Mary Poppins, which is so cute. We loved the live accompanist and the energy of the teachers. She really looked forward to going every day.”
