On behalf of the Board of Directors of Lincoln Theatre Company (in Lincoln, CA), I wanted to let you know how thoroughly delighted our sell-out audiences were with our early August production of “The Most Epic Birthday Party Ever”! We had nearly 400 attendees for two performances…you can imagine how thrilled we were with the community’s reception. Our cast of 22 children, ages 8-14, carried the show with professionalism and great enthusiasm….they simply loved the musical!

I think Beat by Beat is writing some of the best new musicals for children. They know the young child’s voice and are able to create material that is meaningful and reasonable to learn with limited rehearsal time. I highly suggest their work. I’ve done Epic Birthday Party (twice) and We Are Monsters. Looking forward to trying The Grunch!

Thanks for creating such a wonderful accessible show! Our kids owned it from early on in the rehearsal process. That, as you probably know, makes working with a young cast a pleasure. The music is so singable and infectious. I had a great cast and crew and they worked to improve their acting, singing, choreography and timing at every rehearsal. In the end they gave one of the best performances I have had in thirty years of shows.

I just wanted to say thank you! Our Acting Up theater company did EPIC birthday party (with only four days of rehearsal) and had a blast!! The kids loved the music and the story and the audience had a wonderful time! Here are some pics of our production. We are an adaptive theater company so we had kids at all levels of ability — some had never been on stage before. We were able to easily adapt the script as needed so each actor got a fun role and a moment to shine on stage.

I would just like to express my true gratitude to you, your company, and your musical! I teach at a K-6 school, and the 6th grade musical has become a yearly tradition. I have been purchasing musicals for my 6th grade from a more prominent company for several years. They typically contain some tricky music and are difficult to adapt for a cast of 50-65 kids. Not to mention they are expensive. When I came across your company while internet browsing last fall I was truly intrigued. After browsing your webpage and reading some perusal scripts, I decided to use, “The Most Epic Birthday Party Ever!”. What a joy that decision ended up to be. We had two performances last week, and I am still hearing what a great musical it was. The remarks I most love hearing are the ones in which the teachers described how engaged the students were while watching it. One performance is in the afternoon so that the K-4th grades can attend and watch. In past years the kindergarten has left halfway through or not come at all because they couldn’t stay engaged. Even the 1st grades struggle with this at times. This year, though, those teachers were commenting how the kids were singing along and completely engrossed in the story. In the days following the performances the students have continued to mention specific scenes, actors, lines, etc. This makes my day! The student audience understood the story and loved it. They thought the performance was exciting and remember it. This will (hopefully) keep them excited about doing it when they are in 6th grade. I love the storyline; I love the flexibility; I love the adaptability; I love that it’s digital; I love that it is so easy to use every kid in the 6th grade; I love the music; I love the positive message; I love that it has connected my entire school. I am SO excited to try and decide which musical to use next year now. Kudos to you and your company and employees, and I cannot thank you enough for filling a need for educators and directors like me!
