"Dear Chuck was an incredible experience for the actors and for me as the director. It brought up questions about life choices, peer relationships and guidance from adults as well as formed a bond among the participants that will be lifelong. We wouldn't trade the time for anything." —Margaret Foot, Maret School (Washington, DC) 

"The show was a hit! The kids had a great time, as well as did the audience. Please know that your insights into the junior and senior high experience are right on."—Mary Shaffer, Lake Harriet United Methodist Church (Minneapolis, MN)
