What people are saying…

You can’t go wrong with Playmakers!!! Lovely people and a wealth of experience but most of all FUN! I highly recommend! – Lorri King, Parent

For anyone who has seen one of my girls in a show and thinks “I wonder if my little one would like to do that” or “he/she keeps asking me to do it”-this is the information you need! Great classes; fun, talented, patient instructors who love to see kids succeed; and a place for every kid to build confidence and feel comfortable (even if a little out of their comfort zone!). – Jennie Stevens, Parent

I know that I’ve been a huge, possibly sometimes annoyingly so, cheerleader for Playmakers’, but – seriously – these are some really good people teaching kids some great things (even if your kids don’t aspire to be on stage for the rest of their lives). The kids have fun, support each other, and learn how to do so much more than just act (not that that’s a bad thing in and of itself). How many of you parents avoid speaking in front of groups, experience your mind going blank when you need to improvise, or are afraid to fail? Playmakers has helped both of my daughters feel more comfortable with public speaking, realize that the only thing worse than failing is never trying in the first place, understand that saying “yes, and” can take you in some wonderful directions, and – I’ve said it before – I avoid arguing with them because they literally think faster than I do now. All that improv training. Lastly, the folks at Playmakers’ somehow manage to love our kids almost as much as we do. I can’t imagine a more worthwhile organization to become involved with!! – Lara Gautreau, Parent
