About this project:
The show was fantastic, thank you so much for your passion and hard work! It was such a pleasurable experience! Our students can’t wait to discuss the play.
-Yanaelle Cornez, Atlanta International School
From sitting in the lounge waiting for the children to be released from the matinees each morning, I hear a lot of school feedback…you would love to know that everyone from youngest to teenager, city kid to country kid, prep school and public school alike, all have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and have had nothing but positive things to say. Thanks for bringing your vision to the stage.
-Katrina Guettler, Mom of Red Balloon actress
You have no idea how valuable the French performance is to my students. They talk about it for weeks before and especially after the performance. I truly believe that seeing a foreign-language performance motivates the students to learn French. It is indeed a very valuable teaching tool.
-Patrick Mourjan, Teacher at The Lovett School
If these 10 year olds can speak French on-stage, then I can learn it!
