TEACHER, PARENT, AND STUDENT COMMENTS
“Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! The Center of the Universe production was the highlight of Yellow Ribbon Week (School Safety and Violence Prevention Week) at Ridgecrest Intermediate School. The messages of tolerance, respect, and the importance of every human life deeplymoved our students and staff. Your enthusiasm and dedication to the education of our youth is inspiring. I wish you the best and hope to see you again at Ridgecrest.”

“Relevant and timely…The message of the program was excellent and well received by the students…it was heard by the audience because the actors were young and the students could relate to them. Our evaluations are overwhelmingly positive. The students enjoyed and benefited from the performance.”
Secondary Education Conference Chair, 33rd District PTA
“I was very, very impressed. I thought the script, acting, and message of the play were great. Our students really enjoyed it and I feel they learned a valuable lesson about tolerance, diveristy, and life. I wish I would have seen a play like yours when I was in high school. I think you guys are doing a great job in spreading this message.”
