    Hey guys! Flattered that you would think of me. But why not just call this character “coach” – and keep the inspirational dialogue sport generic. There are recognizable coaches in every sport, and location, and it would be easy to communicate the joke through dress – like a hoodie for coach B, or suite and tie for coach K. Keep up the great work! I’m a fan of anyone named Denver!

    I love your musicals! I performed last year in the grunch as a critic and this year at oak hills as synco in their production of Musicville. I think that having the toad as the main character is a great idea and you should use it.

    I love the John Elway character idea! I could see our school make a Seahawks player. They changed it up when they did The Grunch and made it Nike. I think it makes it fun and easy for the kids to relate to.
