"Both my kids attended and loved everything about it. My 6 year old son was the real surprise with how much he enjoyed it… [My daughter] - she’d come home just bubbling over with excitement from the day! This was her second program and she'd like to attend again." - Sam, Chapman
"My child loved the final performance and all the rehearsing they did leading up to it. He enjoyed the variety of activities he got to do e.g. singing, dancing and acting. He also liked the chance to make some new friends." - Neill, Evatt
"Both my children loved their first Budding Theatre holiday program. The activities and guidance with the children helped them go through the stages of group formation and performance, despite different personalities and ideas. The class size was perfect." - Stef, O'Malley
