Check out what parents had to say about our 2017/2018 Library Club!

“My son was reluctant to come to the program the first time we took him, but he really enjoyed the first class and then just wanted to keep going. So much so, that when we asked him if he wanted to sign up a second time, he was very enthusiastic. What I like about your program is that it makes the subject interesting and fun.” 

“The program is a great way to build confidence in performance and to enhance skills and enjoyment of all things theatre – acting, expression, story-telling, imagination.”

“This program has helped improve my children’s oral presentations and drama skills. My children’s in school class presentations have improved greatly and they present in class with great confidence.”

“My 8 years old daughter one day told me she was playing Romeo and Juliet at school recess time with her friend, she was telling the story to them and then she shared her book (the simple version) with her friends. It was great to hear those young kids had such great fun with the play!”
