We are absolutely LOVING Super Happy Awesome News – parents and kids are overjoyed with the material, and it’s coming together nicely. It has been very refreshing to be able to talk so openly about quarantine with the kids… it feels like there is no longer an “elephant in the room”. Not that we deliberately tried to avoid it or anything, but it doesn’t come up naturally much when you’re busy in rehearsals and this show lends itself to the conversations. Seriously, hats off to you. The music is so catchy and well done, and sits really nicely in the kids ranges. As a parent to a little one myself, moments of the “Honestly” lyrics get me everytime, and those roles were highly requested by both our youngest and teen students, so it obviously speaks to them as well.

Thank you so much for making this summer so special for our youth. At Nashville Children’s Theatre, our 8-12 year olds did “The Show Must Go Online” and “Super Happy Awesome News.” Both shows were HUGE hits and the kids had a blast! I can’t thank you and the BBB team enough. We are huge fans!

I wanted to start by saying a big THANK YOU for all the amazing resources you have made available to drama teachers during these difficult times. We have done “The Show Must Go Online”, used your Teaching Theatre Online Curriculum, and are currently producing “Super Happy Awesome News!” These resources have made a huge difference in us being able to connect with our students online and continue to create with them while it is not safe for us to perform and rehearse in person.

The two shows we did (Super Happy and The Show Must Go Online) were perfect for online production. The music was good and the shows were well suited to the medium. I also want to thank you for making your material so available. Everyone is taking a hit and we are no exception. Luckily we were poised to produce a successful virtual summer program.

We held auditions yesterday and the kids had so much fun with the music! Thank you for putting together such a spunky, warm, and accessible show!

Since the first time I directed “The Grunch” for Charlotte Players, many years ago I thought that whoever wrote it had a true heart for the special population of kids who call theatre their “life”. The more you write the more I know how special you are and what you mean to kids all over the world because you just “get them”. I read the whole script and I am so pleased to bring yet another group of kids into the fold of your fan club.

This is incredible! Obviously, I am hoping we can resume in person programming for the fall, but in the event we can’t, I think I have found our fall musical! Keep up the good work, you and your team are appreciated.
