"My 7-year-old daughter has seen most Childsplay performances. She is always entertained, usually laughs, often is educated and sometimes cries, but after the discussion we had on our way home after The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, I saw her become a better person. From the very bottom of my heart - thank you!"
"As a person who grew up in poverty, I never experienced theater within or outside of school until I became a parent myself. I loved watching the joy, thoughtfulness, and curiosity that your performance drew out of my students. For many of our children, this play was both a reflection of their feelings and a source of relief."
"I would challenge any administrator to come into our room during a Childsplay lesson and say the children are not learning."
Each time Childsplay performs in a school, hundreds of young people tap into a world that both reflects their own and challenges them to think beyond their immediate surroundings. This world of imagination supports more creative, more innovative learners - and more empathetic, compassionate human beings.
