TESTIMONIALS

What Our Clients Saying

The Children’s Theatre Company pretty much set me up and prepared me for life. I didn't know it at the time at the age of around 8 when I was sitting in line to audition for a part. I always thought, man this is tough but at the end of the season after the show, it was always worth it. Words I live by now daily; it may be hard but its always worth it. The fact that at such a young age we held the responsibility of prepping, auditioning, practicing and performing is so amazing and couldn't have been a better program for my youth.

I still remember playing characters like Glinda in The Wiz, Smee in Peter Pan, Kim in Bye Bye Birdie and an orphan in Oliver. I find myself thinking of these memories often and as I approach the thoughts of starting a family, I know my kids will be involved in the future.

I am now 29. I graduated from HPHS is '05 and University of Illinois is '09. I am the Assistant Public Relations Manager at Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue as well as the CEO and Founder of Working Girl Inc. My memories and lessons from CTC will always remain with me and have molded me into the woman I am today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Raise the curtains because my story is only beginning!

Thank you Margo and Ann! You guys did a wonderful job. Francis (Fran) had a great time, I'm sure you could tell. He kept telling us he was nervous but he obviously got the jitters out.

We will be signing up for Beauty and the Beast! Thank you for all your hard work and helping these great kiddos learn about performing arts!!

Hi Margo,

I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful experience The Children's Theatre Company provided for Matthew and for us. When will you be doing a play with the Vernon Hills Park District again?

Happy Mother's Day and have a wonderful weekend!

Wendy

Wow! What an amazing show! I am so impressed with all the children and how wonderful they all performance. I loved your message about how acting can really help someone grow. And how it's about the journey. A big thank you for all that you do.

And I was so proud of James and Sophias performance this evening. They were outstanding. I appreciate the confidence and the opportunity that you have given to them. They love the theater!

Hi Margo.
I spoke with one mom today who loved the show and was very impressed 🙂 If you are comfortable offering the class again with five students I'd love to have you back. Small chance I can get one more signed up but as of now it's at five and our registration has closed.
Thanks to your instructor for offering a positive experience to the girls- I am so glad it was well received.

Margo,

The kids did a phenomenal job!

Hi Margo,

I don't know how to thank you enough! Everything came together thanks to your passion and dedication to these kids. I think they all had a great time too.

Parents were telling me how great the show was at temple this morning.

Summer misses you already.

If you wouldn't mind emailing me an invoice - even an email that I can forward to treasurer, that would be easiest and cleanest. If you were charged by your friend or Jeff, please include that. It shouldn't come out of your fee.

I was thinking maybe I could take you, Rob and Sue out for coffee or something to debrief and think through how we can make things run smoother next year.

Again, thank you SO much.

Hope park ridge went well today.

Hi Margo,
Thanks for a really nice experience at the show. Sold out, big fun, happy parents and most of all happy children.
Margo, very clever how you have worked out the scene design and reading of lines to be pretty evenly distributed.
It seems like this partnership is off to a good start here and we look forward to many happy show experiences.
Sorry I had to zip off but I had a commitment to be elsewhere by 9:00pm and I hung out for a minute or two but felt bad I didn’t say goodbye.
Happy Holidays,
Neal (programming director)
